Believe it or not, frozen okra cooks up remarkably well from scratch using an air fryer. The result isn’t mushy or slippery.

Cooking notes

Fro a half back of frozen okra I use a couple table spoons of canola oil. I place the frozen okra in a container, add the spices of the day, seal it, the shake vigorously. This coats the okra all over evenly.

In the picture above I was using a riff on the KFC secret herbs and spices mix which you can google up online. I used a mix of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, celery salt, mustard powder, oregano, basil, salt and black pepper.
