GREEN BEANS WITH CRISPY SHALLOTS1.
Heat vegetable oil in a
small skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the shallots and fry until
crisp and nicely brown, 1-2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer to
a plate lined with a paper towel to drain. Repeat with remaining
shallots. Set aside at room temperature. (Shallots may be cooked several
hours in advance).
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup thinly sliced shallots (5 or 6)
2 tablespoons unsalted margarine
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 pounds green beans, trimmed
fresh ground pepper
. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add margarine and
olive oil. When margarine is melted, add green beans and saute, stirring
frequently, until bright green and crisp tender, about 5 minutes.
Season with salt and pepper. Transfer to a serving platter and top with
crisp shallots. Serve immediately.
