How to Make It
Fill a large bowl with ice cubes and water. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add green beans to pot and cook until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and plunge beans into ice bath. Drain beans again and dry on paper towels.
Warm olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shallots and sauté until softened and lightly browned, about 7 minutes. Add green beans and butter and cook until beans are heated through, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and serve.
