Recipe Ingredients for Green beans with crisp shallots, chile, and mint

1 1/2 lb green beans
2/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
6 oz shallots
1 serrano pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint

Recipe Directions for Green beans with crisp shallots, chile, and mint

  1. Trim green beans.

  2. Slice 5 medium shallots crosswise and separate into rings.

  3. Thinly slice 1 small Thai or serrano chile (2 1/4 inches long, red) crosswise.

  4. Chop mint.

  5. Cook beans in a 4- to 5-quart pot of boiling salted water, uncovered, until just tender, about 5 minutes.

  6. Drain beans in a colander.

  7. Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderate heat until hot but not smoking, then fry shallots in 3 batches, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 3 to 5 minutes per batch (watch carefully; shallots burn easily).

  8. Transfer shallots quickly as browned with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. (Shallots will become crisp as they cool.)

  9. Discard all but about 1 tablespoon oil from skillet, then cook chile over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 2 minutes.

  10. Add beans and salt and toss with tongs until heated through.

  11. Remove from heat and add fried shallots and mint, tossing to combine.
