Panko-Crusted Chinese Long Beans
Combine flour, seafood spice, cornstarch, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Line a baking sheet with paper towels; set aside. Pour oil in a deep pot to a depth of 1 inch. Heat over medium-high heat to 350°F. Moisten long beans; dredge in flour mixture. Dip in beaten eggs, then roll in panko. 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. Transfer fried beans to prepared baking sheet and season lightly with salt. Serve with Sriracha Mayonnaise.
