    Directions
    1.
    For the Aioli, heat sesame oil in a small pan over low heat. Add ginger, garlic, and chile and saute until fragrant and crispy. Drain ginger, garlic, and chile and set aside, reserving the oil.
    2.
    In a blender combine mayonnaise, sour cream, and the reserved sesame oil. Add lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Puree until smooth. Set aioli aside.
    3.
    For the Tempura Green Beans, in a large bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking powder, and the 1 teaspoon salt. Make a well in the center and add yolk. Gradually whisk in club soda, slowly working your way out from the center to form a smooth batter.
    4.
    Pour 2 to 3 inches oil into a large heavy pot and heat to 375 degrees F. Dip green beans into batter, shake off excess, and fry a few at a time for 4 to 5 minutes, until golden and puffy. Drain on paper towels; sprinkle with crispy fried ginger, garlic, and chile. Garnish with lime wedges and cilantro and serve with Aioli.
