  • air fryer



  • Preheat air fryer to 400.
  • Combine cornmeal, flour, Cajun seasoning, and black pepper in a gallon-sized zipper bag. Shake to mix well.
  • Beat the egg in a medium-sized bowl. Add cut okra and stir to coat.
  • Let excess egg drip off okra as you transfer it to the bag. Reseal and shake to coat okra completely.
  • Spray the inside of the air fryer basket and transfer okra to the basket. Spray with cooking spray, toss, and spray again. Let cook 5 minutes.
  • Toss okra, spray with more cooking spray, and cook 5 more minutes.
  • Check for crispiness. Depending on your air fryer, your okra may be done now. If not, toss the okra, spray again, and cook for another 3-5 minutes.
