    1 pound okra, stems removed ( or frozen)
    1/2 cup cornmeal
    Vegetable Oil
    Kosher Salt


Rinse the whole okra pods under cold water, drain, pat dry, trim and cut into 1/4 pieces (or use frozen pieces). Set aside.
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.
