Southern Fried Okra

One of my absolute favorite dishes is fried okra.  No sliminess here!  Just lovely crunchy goodness.

3 - 4 cups sliced okra (about 1/4" thickness)
1 cup self-rising cornmeal
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup canola, vegetable, corn or coconut oil

Mix cornmeal with salt and pepper.  Lightly toss sliced okra in cornmeal.  Shake off the excess cornmeal and set aside. 

In a large cast iron skillet, heat oil over medium high heat.  When oil reaches the shimmering point, add okra to skillet and fry until lightly browned.  Drain on paper towels and add salt if needed.
