DIRECTIONS

  • In a large bowl, whisk together cornmeal, flour and salt.
  • Whisk in water to make a thin batter.
  • Stir in okra and onions.
  • Over medium heat, add clarified butter to a cast iron skillet.
  • Use a small ladle to pour batter onto skillet.
  • Pan should be hot enough to make batter sizzle.
  • Cook until underside is browned, about 3 to 4.
