Temptation isn’t always a bad thing — especially when it comes to Chef Jernard’s tempura battered green beans that pack a crunch and a kick of flavor in each bite.
Tempura Battered Green Beans Ingredients
Canola or vegetable oil for deep frying
2 cups tempura flour
1-2 cups sparkling or seltzer water
1 pound fresh green beans
Salt and pepper to taste
Wasabi Mayo Dipping Sauce Ingredients
1 cup mayo
1 tablespoon wasabi
1-2 tablespoons of coconut milk
Mix together the tempura flour and sparkling water in a large bowl slowly
pouring in the liquid until the desired consistency. The consistency shouldn't
be too thin or too thick, should look similar to pancake batter. Season with
salt and pepper.
Add the green beans into the batter and coat evenly.
Add oil to a large heavy bottom saucepot. Heat until the oil gets up to 350
Fry the green beans until golden brown and drain the excess oil on a plate
with a paper towel.
In a medium mixing bowl mix together the mayo, wasabi, and coconut milk
and set aside for dipping.
