Fried Pecan Okra

Garrett Ganas

Fried, pickled, or grilled, okra is a signature southern ingredient. Named one of Southern Living's best okra recipes, this twenty minute recipe is sure to be any ones favorite!
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose baking mix
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (10-oz.) packages frozen whole okra, thawed or fresh okra
  • Peanut oil

First, place the pecans in an even layer in a shallow pan. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly toasted, stirring occasionally. Process the pecans, baking mix, and next two ingredients in a food processor until the pecans are finely ground. Place pecan mixture in a large bowl, add the okra, tossing to coat. Then gently press pecan mixture into okra. Pour oil to a depth of about two inches into a Dutch oven or cast-iron skillet; heat to 350 degrees. Fry okra, in batches, turning once, 5 to 6 minutes or until golden; drain on paper towels.
