DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet (may use sauce pan, but you'll have to cook in more batches) to 350 degrees F.
  • In a plastic bag, combine cornmeal, flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Shake it up to mix it up thoroughly.
  • Place cut up okra in a bowl, and pour the buttermilk over it. Toss it so that each piece is coated with buttermilk.
  • Add the okra to the bag with the cornmeal mixture in it, and shake it well to coat.
  • Carefully add the okra to the hot oil, and cook until golden brown. You may need to cook it in batches, depending on the size of your skillet or pan.
  • Remove from oil, and drain on paper towels. Test a piece to check and see if you need to add more salt. Do so if needed. Serve immediately and enjoy!
