Skillet Sauteed Okra

Forget messy breading and frying, THIS is the perfect okra--as addictive as popcorn. The little pods get flash sauteed with kosher salt and are cooked enough to give them a browned exterior, a crunch and a tender interior. Get the smallest ones you can find. We love to eat them with our fingers like french fries.
