Recipe of The Month: Sautéd Fresh Okra
Sautéd Fresh Okra
1 pound fresh okra
2 tablespoons butter
2 shallots, chopped
Salt and ground pepper
Wash the okra and trim the stems. Drop into a pot of boiling water and blanch for 1 minute. Drain. In a large, non-stick skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat and sauté the okra and shallots for 3-4 minutes, tossing to coat the okra evenly. Season to taste and serve.
