Fried Okra

-Mess of Okra
-Eggs (1-2 depending on how mush okra you’re going to cook)
-Vegetable Oil
-Box of Cajun Fish Fry

Wash okra thoroughly. Cut off caps (and tiny end pieces if you like) and cut okra into 3/8 – 1/2 inch rounds. Whip the egg. Dip okra pieces in egg first, then the fish fry mix.

Cover the bottom of a pan (or skillet) with vegetable oil. Heat on medium heat until oil is hot enough to ripple. Add okra to the skillet in small batches, spreading out the okra so that it is in a single layer in the skillet. Cook until brown on both sides, turning the pieces halfway through. Remove from the skillet and drain on paper towels.
