DIRECTIONS

  • Mix your cornmeal and salt well in a gallon sized Ziploc bag.
  • Add okra, about 1 1/2 cups at a time.
  • Close bag and shake to cover okra completely with cornmeal mixture.
  • Fry in a cast iron skillet in vegetable or corn oil (I like corn oil best) until okra floats and turns a light brown.
  • Watch this carefully as once it begins to brown, it does so very quickly.
  • Repeat process until all okra is fried.
