Panko Crusted Green Beans with a Soy Garlic Aioli

Panko Crusted Green Beans with a Soy Garlic Aioli
My friend Maureen and I recently went out to dinner to celebrate her birthday and we had a wonderful panko crusted green bean appetizer that we both loved. The restaurant fried their green beans and served them with a flavorful aioli sauce that was fantastic. I decided to recreate a much healthier version at home by baking my green beans. They turned out wonderful! They were crisp and crunchy on the outside without being greasy and the green beans were perfectly tender on the inside. I served them with a simple soy garlic aioli sauce made from mayonnaise, garlic, and soy sauce. This dish is best served fresh from the oven. My entire family gobbled these up with dinner and we loved them.

    I have made the green beans many times, but never made to aioli for dipping. Thank you for the great idea!

    Made these tonight. They were really good, despite overcooking them slightly and not getting to eat them right out of the oven–poor timing. Even with my own mistakes, they were still addictive!

    I think this looks great. I’m having a dinner party. Could I dredge/coat the beans ahead of time, and then pop them in the oven later in the evening? Would they still work out?

    Sorry for my late reply, I have been on the road for 13 days.

    You can certainly dredge/coat them beforehand. Place them on the baking sheet in the refrigerator until ready to cook.
