Thoroughly mix the garlic with the pepper, salt and hot pepper; then stir in
the parsley and set aside.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat.
Add the tomato slices and cook
for about a minute on one side; then turn and sprinkle slices with the garlic, hot
pepper, and parsley mixture. Continue to cook for another minute, shaking the pan
occasionally; then turn the slices again and cook until they are done, but not mushy.
Slide the tomato slices onto a plate, and serve immediately.
Note: Do not try to cook more than two servings at a time or the tomatoes will
end up overcooked.
This type of tomato appetizer is great scooped up onto Arabic bread.
