Mix knuckles, corn, onions, chives ,lemon zest, mayo and season to taste with salt.

For the Fried Green Tomatoes
Cut green tomatoes across the equator into one half inch thick slices (two slices per tomato). Dredge the slices in seasoned flour (salt, flour, smoked paprika), then egg wash(egg beaten with milk), then back into flour again. Panfry tomatoes in 350 degree oil. Drain tomatoes on towels and season immediately with salt.

When lobster salad is chilled proceed to frying green tomatoes. Place one tomato round in the center of plate. Spoon lobster salad onto the tomato and then op with the second tomato. Skewer the claw and one cherry tomato for garnish.
