What can I say...I love fried okra. However, I can not tolerate the thought of boiled okra. Or...okra in soups. Unfortunately, as a child, my first encounter with okra was boiled okra. After that, I refused to taste any okra for years.
Then, for some reason I do not recall, I tasted fried okra...but not just any fried okra...it was cooked using this recipe and I loved it.
Burn the okra? That's what the recipe says. Believe it or not it gives the okra a super crunch with a toasty unique flavor. It's nothing like slimy boiled okra or okra in soups. Another bonus is that this recipe works well with fresh or frozen okra.
If you like crunchy food and if you do not like okra, you really should try this recipe. It just might change your mind about okra forever.
