Serves 6

  • 50g flaked almonds
  • 600g green beans
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 8 anchovy fillets (in oil)

  1. Toast the almonds in a frying pan over a medium heat until golden, then add a pinch of salt and set aside to cool.
  2. Cook the beans in plenty of salted, boiling water for 6 mins (or until they still have a bit of crunch).
  3. Place the butter and anchovies (with a splash of the anchovy oil) in a large pan over a high heat, and stir until the anchovies have melted into the butter and the butter is foaming.
  4. Tip the cooked beans into the anchovy butter, stir until coated.
  5. Sprinkle the toasted almonds on top, and serve with the roast cote de boeuf and truffled macaroni cheese.
