Fried okra is one of my favorite southern side dishes. I especially like to eat it in the summer, when the okra is fresh-picked.

It’s the perfect accompaniment to barbecue and fried or sautéed fish.

However, fried okra is not the healthiest side dish.

The fry oil and breading add a lot of fat and calories. Plus, who wants to stand over hot fry oil in the summertime? Not me.

Today’s Zesty Roasted Okra recipe is a lighter healthier take on fried okra with tons of spicy appeal!

The okra stays moist in the center, yet is crispy around the edges. A simple blend of spices offers huge flavor that complements the okra, not overpowers it.

    Nothing beats fried okra, but this is a close second. Especially considering how healthy they are! I left mine in the oven a little longer because my oven seems to run cool. They were perfectly crisp and delicious.
