  • Vegetable oil, for frying
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons chilled club soda
  • 1/2 pound green beans

How to make this recipe

  1. In a large, deep skillet, heat 1/2 inch of oil until shimmering. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the cornstarch, baking powder, salt and the 1 teaspoon of Old Bay. Gently whisk in the club soda until the batter just comes together; do not overmix.

  2. Working in batches, dip the green beans in the batter, let the excess drip off and add them to the hot oil. Fry until light golden and crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a paper towel–lined baking sheet to drain. Sprinkle with Old Bay and serve with lemon wedges.
