  • Buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal

Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):

  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano

Directions

With a sharp knife, slice the okra into 1-inch slices. Season the okra with salt and pepper. Marinate the okra in buttermilk. Marinate for 30 minutes and drain. Place 1 quart of oil in a saucepan. Heat the oil. In a shallow dish, mix the flour and cornmeal together. Season the flour with Essence. Dredge the okra in the seasoned flour/cornmeal mixture, coating the okra completely.
