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?
