Air Fryer Fried Okra

Ingredients

Ingredient Checklist
1/2 cup (about 2 7/8 oz.) fine yellow cornmeal
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons water
8 ounces fresh okra, cut into 1/2-in.-thick rounds
Cooking spray
1/2 cup bottled white barbecue sauce

Directions

Step 1
Stir together cornmeal, flour, garlic powder, paprika, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt in a shallow dish. Whisk together egg and water in a separate shallow dish.

Step 2
Preheat air fryer to 400°F for 3 minutes. Meanwhile, dip half of the okra in egg mixture; remove okra, letting excess drip off, and transfer to cornmeal mixture, tossing to fully coat. Transfer coated okra to a plate. Repeat process using remaining okra.

Step 3
Lightly coat air fry basket with cooking spray. Add okra to basket in a single layer; coat generously with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and crispy, 12 to 14 minutes, tossing okra and coating with additional cooking spray halfway through cook time.

Step 4
Remove okra from basket; sprinkle evenly with remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt. Serve immediately with barbecue sauce.
