Fried Green Tomatoes in St. Simons, Georgia

Fried green tomatoes are a great southern appetizer, and "Blackwater Grill" knows how to make them well!

Following a six-day stay on Useppa Island in Florida, we’re heading back home. Tonight we ‘ve stopped in St. Simons, Georgia, a QUAINT and charming southern town. 

For dinner, we dined at the “Blackwater Grill,” a restaurant featured on an episode of “Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives.” The food proved to be MEDIOCRE, with the exception of their scrumptious fried green tomatoes. In addition to their perfect crisp, the sweet roasted red pepper sauce perfectly complemented the tomatoes and also added color to the almost PELLUCID fried tomatoes. I have my own recipe for this dish in “Cook Your Way Through The S.A.T.,” but was thrilled to try a different version!

  •  QUAINT- old-fashioned
  • MEDIOCRE- average
  • PELLUCID- transparent
