Step 1

Mix the hot sauce in with the buttermilk if you are using it. This cooks out and really isn't all that spicy, but gives the okra a good flavor. Place the okra slices in a bowl and cover with the buttermilk, coating each piece.

In a gallon size Ziploc bag, mix the flour, cornmeal, salt, pepper and Cajun seasoning. If you don't like a little zip to your okra, you can leave the Cajun seasoning out. I think it adds some extra flavor to it. If you don't use the Cajun seasoning, you might need to sprinkle the cooked okra with a big more salt as soon as you take it out of the oil.
