Fried Okra- quick and dirty.


It's been quite some time since my last post but things have been a tad crazy lately in the work dept. This month I am working craft services for a reality show (featuring models...ahem you know the one) and that means lots of cooking but no time for taking pics and writing posts. But I promise I'll try.

*for those who don't know, craft services is the snacks that are provided to the crews working on the set of a TV show or movie.

So, here I sit at 1 a.m. with an 8 a.m. call time for tomorrow- I bring to you...FRIED OKRA crafty style. YES!!!


1 bag frozen cut okra
3 eggs
a splash of half and half or milk or soy creamer (1 cup?)
1 bag of cajun fish fry (it's basically corn meal and spices)
Rooster Sauce a.k.a Louisiana Hot Sauce
vegetable oil for frying

Heat up the oil in your pan until super hot.

In one bowl mix the eggs and milk so that it has the same consistency of french toast goop. In the other bowl pour the fry meal.

In small batches, with one hand add the frozen okra to the egg mixture so that they are all covered and gingerly place in the corn meal. With the other hand, toss the corn meal onto the okra so that it is all covered and transfer to the oil.

Fry until they are golden brown and dry over paper towels. Serve with the Rooster Sauce as a condiment and get ready for some hugs and possibly kisses from all your southern pals.
