Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon salt-free Cajun or Creole seasoning blend

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten

  • 1/2 cup yellow cornmeal

  • 8 ounces fresh okra, stems discarded, cut into ½-inch slices or 2 cups frozen cut okra, thawed and patted dry

  • Cooking spray

Directions:

  1. Preheat the air fryer to 400˚F.

  2. In a medium shallow dish, stir together the flour, seasoning blend, salt and pepper.

  3. Put the egg and cornmeal in separate medium shallow dishes. Set the three dishes and a large plate or platter in a row, assembly-line fashion. Using a slotted spoon, transfer about one-fourth of the okra to the flour dish, stirring to coat. Transfer to the egg dish, letting any excess drip off. Then transfer to the cornmeal dish, stirring to coat and gently shaking off any excess. Arrange the okra in a single layer in the air fryer basket. (Don’t overcrowd; work in batches as needed.) Lightly spray with cooking spray.

  4. Cook for 10 to 14 minutes, or until golden brown, turning once halfway through and lightly spraying with cooking spray.
