My husband is one of those crazy people who loves Okra.  When I saw some fresh Okra in the store, I thought, what better way to use it then try to fry those suckers up! 

Cornmeal Fried Okra

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh Okra
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, plus an extra pinch
  • vegetable oil for frying

Preparation

  • Combine flour, cornmeal, salt and pepper in a plastic bag
  • Rinse Okra, and without drying, add to flour mixture.  Shake bag to evenly coat all the Okra.
  • Heat oil to 350 and fry okra on each side until golden brown.  Remove from oil with slotted spoon to paper towels.  Immediately sprinkle remaining salt on Okra. 
  • Serve as an accompaniment to Shrimp and Grits.
