The only okra I've every liked
1 pound okra, stems removed ( or frozen)
1/2 cup cornmeal
Place the cornmeal into a sealable ziptop bag. Add the okra and shake to coat thoroughly. Return the okra to a dry colander and shake off excess cornmeal.
Add enough vegetable oil to a 12-inch stainless steel saute pan in order to completely cover the bottom of the pan. Place over medium-high heat and bring the oil to 370 degrees F. Add the okra and fry until golden brown on 1 side, approximately 5 -6 minutes. Stirring occasionally, continue cooking until okra is golden brown on all sides, approxiamtey 5-6 minutes longer. Removed the okra from the pan with a slotted spoon or spatula to a cooling rack set over a newspaper-lined sheet pan. Season, to taste, with salt and allow tyo cool of 1 - 2 minutes before service.
