  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce
  • 1 lime juiced

Shrimp and Green Beans

  • 12 ounces green beans trimmed
  • 16 ounces rice noodles
  • 2 teaspoons neutral cooking oil
  • 4 cups chicken stock

  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp peeled and deveined
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • 10 mint leaves torn
  • ½ lime juiced
  • cup cashews or peanuts crushed

Prepare the Green Curry Paste:

  • Combine all the ingredients for the curry paste in a food processor and pulse until blended. Set aside.

Blanch the Green Beans:

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook for 1-3 minutes until bright green and tender-crisp. Drain and run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Transfer to a bowl and set aside. Wipe out the pot and return it to the stove.

Cook the Noodles:

  • In another pot, bring water to a boil and cook the noodles according to package instructions. Drain and rinse and set aside.

Prepare the Green Curry:

  • Heat the neutral cooking oil in the same pot over medium heat. Once hot, add the green curry paste and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the chicken stock and stir to incorporate the paste into the liquid. Bring to a boil and taste and season with salt and pepper. Add the coconut milk and cook for 5 minutes to thicken.

Cook the Shrimp:

  • Turn the pot to medium heat. Add the shrimp to the pot and cook for 5-6 minutes until almost completely cooked through. Add the green beans and cook for 1-2 minutes more. Taste and season to your preferences. Turn off the heat.

Prepare the Garnish:

  • Before serving, combine the lime juice, cashews, and mint leaves in a bowl and use the back of a spoon to muddle the ingredients together. Season with a pinch of salt.

To Serve:

  • Divide the cooked noodles between bowls and ladle the green curry on top. Garnish with the mint leaves and cashews and serve with lime rounds. Enjoy!
