“So easy and a great spring/summer dish. I was just never fond of fried green tomatoes, so this is my twist. They are both sweet and savory. Serve on a platter with a mix of other grilled tomatoes; maybe some purple or yellow heirlooms This is a great BBQ food or just a nice night to grill out with family. This butter is also wonderful on any vegetable and it takes just minutes to make. Using fresh basil and fresh lemon juice is really important in this dish.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Grill -- Just brush the basil butter over each side of the tomato slice and grill on medium heat until golden brown. I make sure to not cook over too direct of heat so they don't burn - you want them to cook through. They should take around 5 minutes per side. Once done, season with salt and pepper.
  2. Serve -- As I mentioned, I love to serve these along side other grilled tomatoes; heirlooms and other vine ripe, but the green tomatoes will take longer to grill.
  3. This can be done on an inside grill pan, but an outside grill really works best.
