FRIED PECAN OKRA


Active Time : 45 minutes
Total Time : 45 minutes
Serves : 6 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 16 ounce package frozen whole okra (16 ounce) thawed
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose biscuit & baking mix
  • 1 1/2 cups Chopped Pecans
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chile pepper powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • - pure vegetable oil (for frying)

DIRECTIONS

In medium bowl, combine okra and buttermilk; let stand 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, in food processor or blender, combine baking mix, pecans, chile pepper, cayenne and salt. Process until pecans are finely ground; place in a shallow dish.

Pour enough oil into a Dutch oven or large saucepan to reach a depth of 2 inches. Heat oil over medium-high heat until oil reaches 375°F on a deep fry thermometer.

Remove okra from buttermilk using a slotted spoon; coat in pecan mixture. In batches, carefully drop into hot oil.

Fry, turning occasionally, until golden brown (about 2-3 minutes). Remove from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining okra.
