Okra. I have never made anything with okra, nor have a really had a hankering to do so. But it was one of my vegetables in my CSA share so I thought I'd give it a try. If I had time this weekend, I would have preferred to attempt to make a gumbo, but I'm short on time so I did the second .. more >

Directions:

1

Add 1 cup buttermilk, 1 large egg, 1 seeded and minced jalapeño chili and 1/4 cup minced scallions to a medium bowl.

2

Whisk to combine.

3

Prepare the okra. Trim off both ends.

4

Cut the pods into 1/2 inch pieces and place into the buttermilk mixture.

5

Mix together so that the okra is coated. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes.

6

While the okra is marinating, mix 1 tablespoon of salt and 1 tablespoon smoked paprika in a small bowl.

7

In another bowl, mix 2 cups cornmeal and 1 teaspoon salt.

8

Heat 1/2 inch of vegetable oil in a medium frying pan to 375 degrees. Take a few pieces of okra out of the buttermilk mixture at a time, shaking to remove excess mixture, and toss in the cornmeal. In batches, drop the okra into the oil and fry for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until golden.

9

Drain on paper towels.

10

Sprinkle with the paprika-salt mixture and serve.

Okra has a mild flavor and a somewhat unusual texture. One of the best ways to prepare this vegetable is to steam and dress it with a tangy and spicy sauce.
