Here is everyone's favorite way to eat okra. Even those who have no love for okra are tempted by this dish.
1 cup cornmeal
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound okra, sliced into 1/2-inch-thick rounds
1/4 cup vegetable oil
In a bowl or small paper bag, combine the cornmeal, paprika, salt, and pepper. Drop in the okra, a few rounds at a time. Roll the okra around in the cornmeal mixture in the bowl or shake the bag to coat well. Remove the okra to a plate and continue with the remaining rounds.

In a cast-iron or other heavy skillet over high heat, warm the oil. Add the okra and fry, turning to cook on all sides, until tender and golden, 5-7 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, remove the okra to paper towels to drain. Serve hot.
