Green Beans with Brown Butter and Pecans

Green Beans with Brown Butter and Pecans

Ingredients

Blanching the beans ahead of time makes last minute preparations easy in this pretty and delicious side dish.


2 lb green beans, trimmed

1/2 cup toasted pecans, chopped

4 tbsp butter, cut in pieces

1 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped

salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste

Directions

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans; cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Plunge them into ice water to stop cooking and to preserve bright green colour. Drain well, and pat dry with paper towels. Wrap in paper towels and reserve until the last minute. (This step can be done up to a day in advance)

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Add the shallots and pecans. Cook, stirring, until the butter turns a light brown colour, and begins to smell nutty. Add the beans and toss to coat. Cook until the beans are warmed through, about 3 minutes. Add the lemon juice and season with salt and pepper.
