Description

One of my favorite guilty pleasure foods is fried okra. However, I don’t allow myself to indulge in it often. So, after a few attempts, I found a combination of panko and cornmeal that bake into a perfectly crispy crust. Similar taste with none of the guilt!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • ½ cups Panko Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt, Divided
  • ½ teaspoons Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • ½ teaspoons Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
  • ½ cups Fat-free Buttermilk
  • 1 whole Egg, Lightly Beaten
  • 1 pound Fresh Okra Pods, Trimmed And Cut Into 3/4 Inch Slices

Preparation

1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
2. Combine cornmeal, panko, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes in a shallow dish. Set aside.
3. Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl; stir with a whisk.
4. Add okra to buttermilk mixture. Let stand 3 minutes.
5. Dredge okra in cornmeal/panko mixture.
6. Place okra in a jelly roll pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle remaining salt over the okra.
7. Bake 30-35 minutes, stirring once, until golden brown and crispy.

Great recipe….I used frozen okra and thawed it in the fridge for a few hours before preparing. Thanks for sharing!
