French beans with shallots

  • 450g French green beans, ends removed
  • Salt
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tbsp good olive oil
  • 3 large shallots, large-diced
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1) Blanch the French green beans in a large pot of boiling salted water for 1 1/2 minutes only. Drain immediately and immerse in a bowl of ice water.

2) Heat the butter and oil in a very large saute pan or large pot and saute the shallots on medium heat for 5 to 10 minutes, tossing occasionally, until lightly browned. Drain the French green beans and add to the shallots with 1/2 tsp salt and the pepper, tossing well. Heat only until the beans are hot.

Cook's note: If you're using regular French green beans, blanch them for about 3 minutes, until they're tender.
