Fried Pecan Okra

    I've never fried anything before, so maybe I did something wrong. And I used fresh okra, not frozen. But the pecan baking mix coating did not adhere to the okra. As soon as I put it in the oil, it floated away and sunk to the bottom of the pan, making the oil a yucky black mixture. Perhaps an egg coating before the pecan/baking mix make it work?

    Nice recipe with room to play around. As for the one star review, if you're the type not to follow instructions and use fresh okra instead, be sure to use your head and first blanch it, or make a batter, prior to dipping it into the also dry pecan mixture.
