Smashed Fried Okra Recipe
Use a meat mallet to smash okra, starting at the tip of the pod and working down.
Be careful not to smash it to pieces. Sprinkle the okra lightly with salt, pepper, garlic, and cayenne pepper.
Place cornmeal in a shallow dish. Add buttermilk to another dish.
Dip okra in buttermilk.
Dredge in cornmeal, shaking off excess.
In a large skillet or dutch oven, add 2 inches oil. Heat to 350º. Fry okra in batches, 2-3 minutes or until brown and crispy, turning once.
Remove okra and drain on paper towels before serving.
