Southern Fried Okra
"Southern Fried okra is a summer dinner favorite! Tender fresh okra is dredged in a light coating of finely ground white cornmeal and fried to a crispy, golden brown in hot peanut oil. If you're looking for a recipe for fried okra without egg and without buttermilk, you've come to the right place! Traditional southern fried okra recipes don't coat the okra with a wet batter. I personally think that it's too heavy for this delicate vegetable and all you taste in the end is fried batter. Traditionally, we southern cooks use a simple light coating of finely ground white cornmeal with salt and pepper. Very simple. The lighter coating gives the okra itself an opportunity to crisp up during the frying process. Much better than all that gooey batter."
