How To Fry Okra...A Lesson


Slice okra in 1/4 to 3/8's inch pieces...NO BIGGER.

Place sliced okra in ice water.

Heat 1.5 inches of oil to 350 in a deep skillet.

Season corn meal to taste with salt and pepper, or Tony's in place of the salt.


Drain the okra in a colander , and then toss well in the corn meal. Coat each pice well, and make sure none are mating.


Fry in batches until golden and floating. It'll only take a few minutes per batch. Don't crowd the skillet.


Drain on a wire rack. Enjoy.

Can you do this with the unbreaded okra in the frozen food section that come pre sliced?

Where. In. The. Cornbread. Hell. Are. The. Pictures.

Anything other than cornmeal for fryin fish or sides is unacceptable.

Yes, but it's sliced too thick for my taste.

I do it the same way but let them cook until the Okra is nearly black. I love the crunch!
