1 lb okra, 1 teaspoon olive oil, ½ teaspoon sea salt
While the okra is roasting, prepare the glaze. In a small frying pan over high heat, add the orange zest, orange juice, balsamic vinegar, honey, and garlic. Bring it to a boil and let it boil rapidly, whisking occasionally until it has reduced by half, about 5 minutes. If it reduces a little too much, just add another splash of orange juice or water.

Once the okra is nicely browned remove it from the oven and toss it with the orange glaze. Serve the okra with orange slices and a little fresh ground pepper.
