Description

Easy and healthy. Now you can have your “fried” okra and eat it too!

Ingredients

  • 16 ounces, weight Bag Frozen Sliced Okra, Thawed
  • 1 teaspoon Cajun Or Creole Seasoning
  • ½ teaspoons Garlic Salt
  • 1 cup Yellow Cornmeal
  • Canola Oil Spray
  • 1  Gallon-size Zip Lock Bag

Preparation

This makes 7 1/2 on-cup sized servings.

Preheat oven to 425 F. Turn the Ziplock bag inside out and spray it with canola oil spray, then turn the bag right-side out again.

Pour the okra into the bag along with the Cajun seasoning and garlic salt. Seal bag and shake vigorously. Let it rest for 10 minutes so the juices extract from the okra.

Add the cornmeal to the bag and shake it up again. Let it rest 10 more minutes. Give the bag one more good shake. Pour okra into a strainer or colander (place the colander over the sink or over a bowl) so the extra cornmeal will fall off. Spread the okra over a foil covered baking sheet and spread it out evenly. Spray okra with canola oil spray.

Bake for 20 minutes, remove from oven, flip okra over, lightly spray again and return to oven for 20 more minutes. And that’s it! Serve warm.

This was a good option for those who want okra without frying. Our okra did tend to clump together though.
