    1) Fill a large pot with water, add a generous pinch of salt and bring to a boil.

    2) In a small skillet, add the oil, shallots and garlic, cook over medium low heat until they become golden brown, remove with a slotted spoon onto a plate, reserve the oil and let the shallots cool.

    3) Once the water is boiling, add the green beans, cook for 3 minutes, then drain, rinse under cold water to stop them from cooking any further.

    4) In a large skillet, add the butter, once melted add the almonds, allow to get lovely lightly golden brown, add the drained green beans, cook for a couple minutes to heat them through (taste and adjust the seasoning) then squeeze some lemon right in, place on a platter and scatter with the crispy shallots and garlic, serve right away!
