What you need:

  • 1/2lb okra - washed

  • 3 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 cup flour

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp garlic salt

  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Set your water bath to 80ºC (176ºF)

  2. Seal okra and olive oil in a vacuum-seal bag or a freezer safe zip bag sealed using the water displacement method.

  3. Fully submerge the okra in the water bath and sous vide for 20 minutes.

  4. In a large bowl, mix flour, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, and garlic salt. Set aside.
