This is what we had for supper on Friday night. A simple little dish but very enjoyable. I posted this some time ago so figured it was time to do so again.
Stir-Fried Green Beans with Shrimp and Garlic
2 Tbs vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 lb large shrimp-shelled, deveined and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 lb green beans, thinly sliced 1/4 inch thick on an extreme diagonal
1/4 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
1 Tbs Asian fish sauce
Freshly ground pepper
1. Heat a wok until very hot. Add the vegetable oil and heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the shrimp and a pinch of salt and stir-fry until the shrimp are just beginning to turn pink, about 30 seconds. Add the green beans and 2 tablespoons of the stock and stir-fry until the beans soften slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of stock along with the fish sauce and a generous pinch of pepper and stir-fry until the shrimp are cooked through and the beans are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes longer. Serve right away.
