Using fresh, good quality okra is the key to the success of this recipe. I’ve had the best results getting the okra from my farmers market and cooking it within 1 day. Select smaller pods with bright green color. These are the most tender and flavorful. Avoid the larger pods which tend to be tough and woody.
For extra flavor, add 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning before roasting. Choose a blend without salt.
