In addition to being very tasty, okra is packed with nutrients. One of them is vitamin C – about 36 percent of the daily recommended amount. Air fryer okra uses much less oil than frying in the skillet.
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen cut okra
1 large egg
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup (more or less) cornmeal or Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
Kosher or sea salt to taste
Oil or non-silicone cooking spray of choice
Mix egg and milk in a medium-size bowl. Pour cornmeal or bread crumbs into a
pie plate. Dip frozen okra cuts into egg-milk mixture to coat and lift out with
a slotted spoon and put them into the cornmeal or bread crumbs. Cover the
egg-dipped okra with the cornmeal or bread crumbs and place into air fryer
basket in a single layer. Spritz with oil or non-silicone cooking spray. Fry at
400 degrees F for 5 minutes.
Remove basket from air fryer and stir okra. Return to air fryer and
continue frying at 400 degrees F for 4 to 5 more minutes.
Sprinkle with kosher or sea salt and serve.
Cook time: 10 mins | 6 servings
As with all air fryers, the time may have to be adjusted up or down. It
doesn't hurt to keep checking.
