Trader Sam's Chinese Long Bean Recipe

Trader Sam's Chinese Long Beans - A Disney Parks Blog Photo

I was one of those who lamented the closing of the Lost Bar at the Disneyland Hotel last year.  In the current Disneyland Hotel renovation, the Lost Bar was demolished and replaced with a new casual meeting spot - Trader Sam's.  Now I haven't been to Trader Sam's yet but do look forward to making it over there someday hopefully soon.  In the meantime, the reports of the great atmosphere, dynamite tropical drinks, and a tasty appetizer menu that make up Trader Sam's offerings are regularly posted on Disney discussion boards. Disney Parks Blog recently posted the recipe for the fried Chinese long beans served at Trader Sam's.  I'll include it in my Disney recipe collection on this blog because it looks simple to make but also reminds me of something I need to try on my next trip.

For sriracha mayonnaise:
Combine mayonnaise, sriracha, vinegar, salt, green onions, lime juice, garlic and pepper in small bowl. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
For panko-crusted long beans:
  1. Combine flour, seafood spice, cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a shallow bowl.
  2. Line a baking sheet with paper towels; set aside.
  3. Pour oil in a deep pot to a depth of 1 inch. Heat over medium-high heat to 350°F.
  4. Moisten long beans; dredge in flour mixture. Dip in beaten eggs, then roll in panko.
  5. Working in batches, gently place in hot oil until golden brown about 2 to 3 minutes, using tongs or a slotted spoon to gently turn beans every 45 seconds.
  6. Transfer fried beans to prepared baking sheet and season lightly with salt.
