Air Fried Panko Okra

I got a bunch of okra from my aunt.  I made it two different ways and this is one of them.  It's a spin off my most popular video recipe, which is the Air Fried Ranch Panko Chicken Tenders.

The okra turned out with a golden brown crispy outer layer, perfectly tender on the inside, with a hint of slime. Delicious!

I enjoyed these and like this breed of okra.  I have been growing some in my container garden and the breed I have is more fibrous.  Mine need to be picked super young and small so it doesn't get too fibrous.  Fiber sounds good for your health, but fiber isn't very palatable. 😛

Here's my recipe for Air Fried Panko Okra.  It tastes great alone, but is also neutral enough if you'd like to have it with your favorite dipping sauce.  I had it with ketchup and it was like fries. I wondered if I should call them Okra Fries instead.

  • 4-5 cups okra, rinsed, ends chopped off, sliced in halves lengthwise
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 dash pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • Panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
  • Avocado Oil Spray
  1. Prepare okra as indicated above (rinse, chop, slice). Set aside.
  2. Crack eggs into a bowl.
  3. Add garlic powder, salt, pepper, and parsley to eggs and scramble.
  4. Pour egg mixture over okra and toss well to coat. Set aside.
  5. Pour half bag of panko into a resealable container.
  6. Add egg-coated okra to panko.
  7. Pour remaining panko over okra.
  8. Seal container and shake vigorously.
  9. Place panko-coated okra in a single layer of air fryer pan.
  10. Spray with avocado oil.
  11. Air fry for 15 minutes at 400 degrees.
  12. Serve.
