Grilled Green Tomatoes

Yield: 4 Servings
Total Time:
30 mins
Cook the tomatoes to the texture that you like. I don't like them too soft. I usually grill them to where they still hold their shape and not falling apart. How thick you cut your tomatoes will determine how long they will cook


  • About 2 pounds of green tomatoes
  • 1/3 cup cooking oil , such as grape seed oil or olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons fish sauce or soy sauce or Worcestershire sauce (Use Tamari for gluten free)
  • fresh cracked black pepper to taste


  1. Heat grill and slice green tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick.
  2. In medium bowl, combine oil, garlic, brown sugar, black pepper and fish sauce (or soy sauce or Worcestershire)
  3. Add green tomatoes slices to bowl and evenly coat all the slices with the marinade.
  4. Grill each side of the tomato until your desired texture (about 2-4 minutes on each side). How thick you slice your tomato will determine how long it cooks.

  5. Serve as a side dish, on burgers or chopped in a salad
