To those only familiar with fried okra, this will be an okra epiphany. With its crisp, green fresh taste, you'll swear you're eating a different vegetable. Sauté only until al dente.


2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
1/2 pound fresh okra
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  1. Heat oil and butter over high heat in a large skillet. Add okra; sauté 3 to 4 minutes or until pods are bright green with slight browning. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Serve hot.
