Summer in a pan, these lightly fried cherry tomatoes just melt on the plate. Serve with pasta, on toast, or cold in a vegetable salad. Any way you serve them, they are the epitome of food good! Pair this with, say, a spicy pork tenderloin and bottle of Merlot for a home run. My Fried Cherry Tomato Recipe!
Fried Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes
- 3 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- Place tomatoes, garlic, and olive oil in 10-12" pan along with a pinch of salt. Set over very low heat, uncovered, for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- After the tomatoes have softened, boost heat to high, and once you hear sizzling, fry for 2-3 minutes (stirring continuously) or until tomato skins just start to blister. Serve immediately!
