From the inventory.
I‘m 99% sure it isn’t showing up in my datastore browser anymore. But I shut the whole server down with a quickness once I realized what i had done.
Connect by SSH on server.
Find the localization of vm paste.
If the content of the VM, open console WEB and register the VM.

Your probably going to need to take the disks fully offline(so they don't get any data written to them), then mount RO under a Linux boot disk like UltimateBoot CD and use something like "photorec" to search the drives for the deleted files.
Photorec is a tool that can recover files based based on the signature of the filetype / extension.
VMDKs liked used with ESXi do not have a unique signature so there is no straight forward way to recover them with photorec.
Photorec can be useful to recover Workstation vmdks on a Windows- or Linux-host.
