  • 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

Preheat oven to 450°.

Wash okra; trim ends, and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Combine cornmeal, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl; stir well, and set aside.

Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl; stir in okra. Let stand 10 minutes.
