  1. In a medium bowl, stir together mustard, 1/2 cup olive oil, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, garlic, lemon juice, onion and 2 teaspoons of green onion. Season with paprika, pepper, cayenne pepper and parsley. Gently stir in the shrimp until evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate until needed.
  2. In a shallow bowl, whisk together the buttermilk and egg with a fork. Spread the cornmeal out on a plate. Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add more if needed to maintain an even coating of oil in the bottom of the skillet.
  3. Dip the tomato slices in the buttermilk and egg, then dip into the cornmeal to coat thoroughly. Fry slices in the hot oil until golden brown on each side, about 5 minutes per side. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and continue breading and frying the remaining tomato slices.
  4. To serve, arrange salad greens on six plates. Top each one with two slices of fried green tomato, then spoon some of the shrimp remoulade over the tomatoes and sprinkle with the remaining green onion to garnish.

Thanks so much for this recipe. I use the same ingredients but never bothered to measure, just eyeballed it. Thanks again.

I thought the amount of mustard overwhelmed the other remoulade ingredients but overall tasty and a nice topper for the fried green tomatoes. I will make again but reduce the amount of mustard.

Unbelievable~!!!! The shrimp remoulade made this so amazing. Definately to next level. Can't wait for my spring tomatoes so I can share this again
