1/4c cajun spices in 1/4c oil thickened it too much so added addt'l 1/4c oil. I didn't weigh okra, but had a cookie sheet full. Yup, foil lined it & baked it@425, 20minutes, turn, 20 more. Tasted after first 20, almost done, soft, cajun seasoning is pretty salty. Lessons learned: Since the spices thicken the oil, too much stays on initially. The oil then bakes off & okra won't get crisp sitting in oil. Using butter, I thought it would burn too fast; & didn't want to waste it if it wasn't good anyway. Oil isn't so expensive. :) Sooo, if we have too much okra next year, I'll toss the okra in oil without the spices in it. Then sprinkle them on once on the pan & again after turning. I let it sit in the oven passed the second twenty with the heat off & it wasn't so pretty; but, again, we could eat it & the saltiness wasn't too much - just more than I expected compared to the hot cajun taste.
