Spicy Green Beans with Shrimp Stir Fry


* 1/2 lb fresh French beans (substitute regular green beans)
* 1 tbsp minced garlic
* 1 tbsp diced shallots
* 1 tbsp shrimp paste
* 2 tbsp dried shrimp, chopped
* 1 tbsp Sambal Oelek (1 tbsp red pepper flakes)
* 1 tbsp light soy sauce
* 1 tsp rice vinegar
* 1/4 tsp brown sugar
* salt to taste
* 1 tbsp oil

Method (How to Cook)

Place the beans with about a tablespoon of water in a microwave safe dish. Cook on high for 2 minutes.

Heat oil in a large wok or frying pan, add the dried shrimp and saute for about a minute or so.

Now add the shallots and garlic and saute till soft. Add the shrimp paste and red pepper flakes and mix well. Add the green beans and stir fry for a couple of minutes.

Add the soy sauce, sugar, vinegar and salt to taste and mix well.

Stir fry on medium heat till the beans are tender.

Serve warm. This is a great appetizer on its own, or goes well with steamed rice also.

Note: If you like your beans crisp, skip the first step of pre-cooking the beans.
