How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 450º.

Step 2

Combine cornmeal, 1/2 teaspoon salt, black pepper, and red pepper in a shallow dish; set aside.

Step 3

Combine buttermilk and egg in a large bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add okra; toss to coat. Let stand 3 minutes.

Step 4

Dredge okra in cornmeal mixture. Place okra on a jelly-roll pan coated with cooking spray. Lightly coat okra with cooking spray. Bake at 450º for 40 minutes, stirring once. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
