What I liked most about this is the cooking method! Blanching the green beans before finishing them off in the skillet served to preserve their vibrant green color, and made them perfectly crisp-tender. I finished cooking the beans in the skillet together with the shallots and garlic as I didn't want to take a chance of overcooking them. I added some chopped red pepper for color and eye appeal, and finished them with a drizzle of toasted sesame oil. I forgot the sesame seeds, darn it, but these were so good we didn't even miss them. These weren't "spicy," as indicated in the title, but they sure were good, and truly stood apart from your everyday green beans!
