7-8 ounces fresh okra 1 egg 1 cup skim milk 1 cup breadcrumbs 1/2 teaspoon sea salt oil for misting or cooking spray


Remove stem ends from Okra and cut in 1/2 inch slices. In a medium bowl, beat together egg and milk. Add okra slices and stir to coat. In a sealable plastic bag or container with lid, mix together the breadcrumbs and salt. Remove okra from the egg mixture, letting excess drip off, and transfer into bag with breadcrumbs. Be sure okra is well drained before placing it in the breadcrumbs. You may want to use a slotted spoon to lift the little okra at a time and let plenty of the egg wash drip off before putting it into the breadcrumbs.

Shake okra in crumbs to coat well. Place all of the coated okra into the air fryer basket and mist with oil or cooking spray. Okra does not have to be in a single layer, and it isn’t necessary to spray all sides. A good spritz on top will do. Cook at 390F for 5 minutes. Shake basket to redistribute and give it another oil spritz as you shake. Cook for 5 more minutes. Shake and spray again. Cook for 2 to 5 minutes longer or until golden brown and crispy.
