Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh green beans, trimmed
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (for dredging)
  • 10 oz light beer (I use Guinness Blonde)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • pinch cayenne pepper
  • peanut or canola oil for frying
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1 tsp wasabi paste

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix mayo and wasabi paste until combined.  Refrigerate until ready to serve.
  • Heat 1-2 inches of oil in a large heavy bottomed pot (I use my dutch oven), over MED heat until it reaches 375 F degrees.
  • Line a rimmed baking sheet with paper towels and top with a cooling rack.  Set aside, close to your frying pot.
  • In a mixing bowl, whisk together beer, flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.  Dredge green beans in 1/2 cup flour, shaking off excess, then dip green beans in beer batter.  Let excess batter drip off, then fry in batches, a few minutes per side, until golden brown.
  • Remove green beans to prepared baking sheet.  Repeat with remaining green beans.
