This simple but elegant dish is one the is a consistent crowd pleaser. Might have to do with the fact it’s drenched in butter and topped with crunchy toasted almonds. You can almost be certain to please the first mate with this tasty side dish.


4 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. oil
1 cup sliced almonds
16 oz. green beans, trimmed
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
¼ tsp. each salt and pepper


Melt butter and oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add almonds and stir for two minutes until golden. Add beans and toss to combine. Cover and heat for an additional 3-4 minutes until beans are cooked. Remove from heat, add lemon juice, salt and pepper, and toss.
