    PanNan's Note:

    This fried okra is very crispy. The Parmesan coating adds a nice flavor to the okra. Since there is no flour or cornmeal used in the recipe, it's perfect for a low carb diet .like Somersizing.

      Place oil in heavy pan to at least 2" in depth.

      Add the okra to the hot oil.
    11. 11
      Depending on the size of the pan, you may have to do this in two batches.

      Delicious! A different take on Southern Fried Okra. My only problem was getting the coating to adhere to the okra. But the final result was wonderful! Thanks for sharing! Made for Culinary Quest Summer 2014.

      These were very good! Using the parm instead of breading is a great idea if you're watching your carbs. Crunchy and golden brown on the outside, soft in the middle, and no slime like you sometimes get with okra. Thanks for a fun way to try this vegetable!
