Ingredients

  • Canola oil, for frying
  • 1 pound okra
  • Salt
  • 10 fresh sage leaves

Directions

Fill a large pot with enough oil to reach 2 inches up the sides of the pot. Heat oil to 360 degrees F.

Thinly slice okra crosswise. (There should be about 6 to 8 slices from each.) In batches fry okra in the hot oil until edges turn golden brown and crisp, about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt. Place okra on a serving platter. Fry sage leaves in a single batch until crisp and nearly translucent, about 1 minute. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and sprinkle with salt. When cool enough to handle, crumble sage leaves over okra and serve warm or at room temperature.
