Ingredients

How to make it

  • Combine butter, paprika, and garlic in small bowl; set aside.
  • Heat oil in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until just smoking. Add beans, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper; cook, stirring occasionally, until spotty brown, 5 to 6 minutes. Add water, cover, and cook until beans are bright green and still crisp, about 2 minutes.
  • Remove cover, increase heat to high and cook until water evaporates, about 1 minute.
  • Add butter mixture and continue to cook, stirring frequently, until beans are crisp-tender, lightly brown, and beginning to wrinkle, 2 to 3 minutes longer.
  • Transfer green beans to serving bowl, toss with lemon juice and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.
  • Sprinkle with almonds and serve immediately.

    I love the spanish twist on these green beans, with the smoked paprika and almonds. Smoked paprika is one of my most used and favorite spices :-)

    Great recipe, dear Michael, and one I will use this weekend with some grilled salmon fillets and grilled corn on the cob. It's like you read my mind and knew I need a stand-out green bean recipe. Thank you so much!
