Whisk buttermilk and 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning in a medium bowl. Add okra and toss to coat. Let stand for 10 minutes.Advertisement
Meanwhile, whisk flour, cornstarch and 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning in a medium bowl.
Drain the okra and toss in the flour mixture until well coated.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the okra in a single layer and cook, turning occasionally and tilting the pan to evenly distribute the oil, until golden on all sides, about 6 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Sprinkle the okra with the remaining 1/2 teaspoon Cajun seasoning and salt.
