1. Cut off the very end of the stem and discard. Then cut the okra into 1/2 inch diagonal (or straight) slices. (Discard the tips of the okra only if they look to brown.) Toss with the oil and salt, and spread evenly on a baking sheet or broiler pan.
2. Preheat the broiler and broil the okra 4 to 5 inches from the source of heat until the tops are browned, 3 to 5 minutes.
3. Turn off the broiler and heat the oven to 450°F. Place that sheet with the okra on the lowest rack in the oven and bake until the bottom is golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. (With the okra subjected to heat once from the top and then from the bottom, there is no need to stir.) Serve hot.
VARIATION: To broil the okra whole, cut a thin slice from the stem end and discard. Then, starting at the stem end and stopping about 3/4-inch from the tip, split each okra in half lengthwise most of the way through. (Do not cut the okra into 2 pieces both cut sides should remain attached at the tip.) Then toss with the oil and salt and cook as explained above.
