Ingredients

  • 1

    lb. of fresh okra, washed and sliced across in about 1/2 inch pieces

  • 2

    cups buttermilk

  • 1

    tsp. hot sauce (optional)

  • 2

    cups self rising flour

  • 2

    cups corn meal

  • 1

    tsp. salt

  • 1

    tsp. Cajun seasoning (optional)

  • 1/2

    tsp. black pepper

  • oil for deep frying

Directions

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.
