DIRECTIONS

  • Clean and slice okra, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Beat egg in a shallow bowl.
  • Place grated Parmesan cheese in a shallow bowl.
  • Pour okra into the beaten egg.
  • Stir until every okra slice is wet from the egg.
  • Remove with a slotted spoon, and place into the bowl with the Parmesan cheese.
  • Stir until every okra slice is covered with cheese.
  • Place oil in heavy pan to at least 2" in depth.
  • (I use a deep fryer.) Heat until a single slice of coated okra dropped into the oil starts sizzling.
  • Add the okra to the hot oil.
  • Depending on the size of the pan, you may have to do this in two batches.
  • Remove when the okra slices are golden brown and crispy.
  • Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.
