  • Summary

    Our version of this Southern favorite uses egg whites instead of whole eggs, resulting in a lighter, crispier coating. A cast-iron skillet works best, but any heavy skillet will do.

    Ingredients

    • 2 large egg whites
    • 1 pound okra, trimmed and sliced crosswise 1/2 inch thick
    • 1 1/4 cups yellow cornmeal
    • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
    • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    • Coarse salt and ground pepper
    • 1 quart vegetable oil
    • Hot sauce, for serving (optional)
