2 pounds green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 cups sliced shallots (about 4 large)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup sliced almonds, toasted


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.
