January 7th is National Tempura Day, and while you can head to your nearest Japanese restaurant, you can make Tempura Green Beans at home. This recipe, with Spicy Sriracha Mayo Dip, is courtesy of Southern Selects, which makes it with French green beans.

What’s the difference between French green beans and regular green beans?

French green beans, called haricots verts in French, are slightly longer and skinnier than regular green beans and may be a little bit more expensive. They are both the same genus and species* but haricots verts are harvested earlier than regular green beans, so they are more tender and more flavorful.

  • 8 ounces green beans or haricots verts
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 1½ cups cold sparkling water
  • Vegetable oil for deep frying
    For The Sriracha Mayonnaise (Spicy Dipping Sauce)

  • ¾ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoonsp soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons sriracha hot sauce

    1. MAKE the sriracha mayonnaise dipping sauce. Whisk all ingredients in a small bowl. Set aside.

    2. PREPARE the green beans. Whisk together the dry ingredients until well combined, then whisk in the sparkling water. Do not overmix or the dough will become tough and chewy.

    3. DIP the beans in the batter, shaking off excess batter. Fry them in vegetable oil at 375°F in batches, for 2 to 3 minutes, turning as necessary until golden and the beans are tender and crisp.

    3. TRANSFER the beans to a plate lined with paper towels to drain the excess oil.

    4. SERVE the hot beans with the sauce on the side.
