Bit of Flavor Tasty Fried Okra

Ingredient List is at the end...
I love fried okra!!  But I do not have the best frying skills. 
I tend to over-stir, and lose all of the batter.
Yes - this happens to pretty much anything I fry.

But this time - Oh, this time, I got it right!!

So grab a handful or three of fresh okra, and let's do this!

First, gather your ingredients.

Rinse and pat dry the okra.

Using a sharp knife, cut the okra into 1/4" slices.

In a medium bowl, gently beat the egg.


Put all of the okra into the egg, stir it up a bit, and let soak for 10-15 minutes.


In another bowl, mix bread crumbs, panko, and seasonings.

Pour dry mixture over the marinating okra, and gently mix.

Heat oil over medium-high heat.

Carefully pour the okra into the hot oil, and allow to begin cooking.

Using a flat, wide spatula, gently lift a section of okra and flip it over.

Continue flipping sections so that all the okra has a chance to cook on all sides.

Reduce heat to medium as okra continues to cook.

Remove okra to a paper towel to drain.

If not serving immediately (which is the recommended way, of course!),
you can wrap loosely in foil and set in a warm oven.


Serve, and Enjoy!!
