PEANUTTY FRIED OKRA

1 lb fresh okra*, cut into bite-size pieces
1 tsp salt
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1 cup biscuit baking mix ie Bisquick
1/2 cup finely chopped salted dry-roasted peanuts
1/2 tsp pepper
peanut oil for frying

Toss the okra with the salt and let set for 15-20 minutes.

Add the egg white to the okra and stir to coat.

In a large bowl combine the baking mix, peanuts, and pepper mixing until well blended.  Add the okra and toss to coat, gently pressing peanut mixture onto the okra; shake off excess.

Pour peanut oil 2-inches deep into a cast iron skillet or a Dutch oven; heat to a temperature of 375 degrees.

Fry the okra, half at a time, for 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown; drain on paper towels.



*If you don't have fresh okra, you can substitute a 1-lb pkg of frozen that has been thawed.

Yield: 4 servings
