Ingredients

Emeril's ESSENCE Creole Seasoning (also referred to as Bayou Blast):
Warm Andouille Dressing:

Directions

Beat together the buttermilk, egg and hot sauce in a small bowl. Add the okra and turn to coat evenly. Let sit for 30 minutes.

In another bowl, combine the flour, cornmeal, and 1 teaspoon of Essence.

Dredge the okra in the flour mixture and heat the shortening in a skillet, if using, otherwise heat oil in a deep-fryer or Dutch oven to 360 degrees F. When it is hot, place the okra in the oil and fry, turning once, for about 2 minutes, or until lightly golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle the okra with the remaining 1 teaspoon of Essence. Divide the frisee among 4 salad plates, season with salt and pepper, to taste, top each with okra, smoked mozzarella and drizzle with dressing. Serve immediately.
