Fried Okra

(JodyLee Estrada Duek, TCSA)

This recipe is much simpler and down-to-earth than the one I provided a while back! If you haven’t yet tried fried okra, I encourage you to give this recipe a try!—Christa

15 baby okra, 4-5”
1 egg
2 ounces oil

Dip okra in beaten egg and roll in cornmeal. Fry 1-2 minutes in hot oil, turning once or twice. The okra should be al dente and just cooked, with the seeds feeling like young corn kernels in your mouth. Serves 2.
