  1. Preheat oven to warm setting or to the lowest temperature your oven will go to. Prepare a cookie sheet with 3 to 4 sheets of paper towels.
  2. Begin heating the oil in your fryer. The amount used varies from model to model, but mine has a fill line to make it easier to measure.
  3. In a medium bowl toss heavy cream and sliced okra together and let soak for at least 10 minutes.
  4. In a gallon ziplock bag mix corn meal and Cajun seasoning together. Pour the saturated okra into the bag, seal, and shake it up making sure the okra is well coated.
  5. Add okra in small batches to the fryer. Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes, or until well browned. Drain on cookie sheet with paper towels and salt generously. Leave cooked okra in the oven to maintain freshness. It tastes like you just pulled it out of the fryer when you do this!
  6. Serve immediately.
Recipe Notes

If you have leftovers heating them up is a cinch! Turn your oven's broiler to high and heat fried okra in the microwave for 30 seconds, just to warm through. Spread okra evenly on a cookie sheet and broil for 5 minutes, checking constantly and turning to achieve even crunchiness. Voila! They taste just like you pulled them out of the fryer!
