Game plan: Make the dipping sauce the day before you go camping and bring it along. You might want to wash the green beans the day before too, though there’s no need to remove the stems.
This recipe can also be made indoors. Heat the broiler and place the beans on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Place under the broiler, occasionally turning the baking sheet, until the beans are blistered and charred, about 5 minutes. And, of course, you can just use regular salt and freshly ground black pepper in place of the chef’s mix listed in the ingredients.
1Make the dipping sauce by placing all sauce ingredients in a small mixing bowl and stirring until well combined. Transfer to a small, airtight plastic container.
At the campsite:
1Build a hot campfire and place a grilling rack over it. Toss green beans with oil and season well with salt and pepper mix. Place beans in a large grilling basket with a handle and set the basket on the grilling rack.
2Cook until beans are charred and blistered on the bottom, then flip the basket to char the other side, about 3 to 5 minutes per side depending on your fire’s heat.
3Transfer charred green beans to a platter and serve with Cajun dipping sauce.
