  1. Place tomato slices in a bowl of ice water; soak for about 5 minutes.
  2. Heat about 1/2 inch of canola oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat.
  3. Combine cornmeal and flour in a bowl.
  4. Remove tomato slices from ice water, one at at time, and coat lightly in the cornmeal mixture; shake off any excess. Place in the hot oil.

I have made these 4 times all with the same result- I get sick from eating so many. I don't know if I should put that in a review... But it means they are so good I can't quit eating them. The c...
