Fried Okra Recipe

Fried Okra


1 1/2 cups sliced fresh okra, blanched and cooled or 1 (10-ounce) box frozen sliced okra
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste (optional)
Vegetable oil for frying


If using frozen okra, place in a colander and allow to thaw. Drain for 30 minutes before proceeding. In a shallow bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, salt and pepper. Gently roll okra in cornmeal, coating each piece. Set aside 1 hour to dry. This keeps the coating from falling off during frying. In a large skillet, heat 1/2 inch oil until hot. Add okra pieces in a single layer, cook and roll gently with a fork until browned on all sides. Drain on paper towels. 6 servings.
