Cooking Instructions

  1. Pat tomato slices dry with paper towels. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt.

  2. Stir flour and garlic powder together in a shallow dish. Place eggs in a separate shallow dish. Stir panko and cornmeal together in a third shallow dish. Dredge the tomato slices in the flour mixture and then dip in the eggs, shaking off excess; dredge in the panko mixture.

  3. Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Arrange half of the tomato slices in an even layer in the fryer basket; coat the tomatoes well with cooking spray. Cook until crispy and golden on one side, about 4 minutes. Flip the tomato slices; coat with cooking spray and cook until golden and crispy, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Repeat the procedure with the remaining tomatoes. Sprinkle evenly with pepper and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt.

  4. Meanwhile, combine mayonnaise, parsley, mustard, lemon juice, capers and Worcestershire in a small bowl. Serve the tomatoes with the sauce.
