Table for One: Fried Okra

Found some yummy okra at the farmer’s market!  We wanted to make fried okra, found a recipe, and went for it… and it was delicious.  I served it with BBQ pork chops and yellow rice.  Inexpensive and divine!


    1 pound okra
    1/2 tsp salt (more to taste)
    1 1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 cup cornmeal
    2 cups vegetable oil


  • Wash the okra and drain it well.
  • Cut off tip and stem, and cut the okra into 1/2 inch slices.
  • Put the okra slices into a casserole dish, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp salt.
  • Pour in the buttermilk, and stir until the okra is well coated.
  • Let it sit in the buttermilk for at least 15 min, then drain well.
  • In the meantime, pour the oil into a skillet. Heat on medium heat until the oil is hot.  (you’ll know it’s hot when you can flick a drop of water at the pan and it sizzles and pops)
  • Pour the cornmeal over the okra, and mix to coat it well.
  • Carefully (!) add the cornmeal-coated okra to the hot oil, stir until golden brown.
  • Remove the okra to a plate or bowl lined with paper towels.
  • Sprinkle with more salt to taste.
  • So. Good.  Don’t share, or they’ll be gone before you know it.
