Okra Fritters

Source: Everyday Food, September 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 2 cups frozen sliced okra, thawed and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced small (1/2 cup)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup buttermilk

Directions

  1. In a large, heavy skillet, heat oil over medium. In a medium bowl, combine flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add okra and onion and toss to coat. In a small bowl, whisk together egg and buttermilk. Add to okra mixture and stir just until combined.

  2. In two batches, drop batter in 2-tablespoonful mounds into oil. With a small spatula or butter knife, gently flatten each mound and fry until golden, about 4 minutes per side, flipping once (adjust heat if browning too quickly). Drain on paper towels. Season with salt and serve warm. Makes about 10.
