MyCookbook Member: jessking
Recipe Category: Side Dish
Recipe Preparation Level: easy
    1 1/2 cups sliced fresh okra
    1 cup cornmeal
    1/2 cup flour
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    Pepper
    Oil for frying

    Salt okra and let sit a few minutes to bring out juice. In a shallow bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, and pepper. Gently roll okra in cornmeal, coating each piece. Set aside 1 hour to dry. (This way the coating won't fall off when you fry it!) 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. Makes 6 servings.
