To make the Limone butter, mix on stick of butter with shallots, garlic, chopped herbs and Limone Salt.

To ready the green beans, prepare an ice bath and bring a large pot of water to a boil. In batches, blanch the beans until tender, about 4 minutes or so. They should still have a slight crunch. Drain the beans and immediately submerge in the ice bath for a minute or two to stop the cooking. Drain well and place on a sheet pan with a kitchen towel to dry. 

Right before serving, melt the Limone butter over medium heat in a large pan. Add the green beans to the pan and sauté for 3-4 minutes until heated through. Check for seasoning and serve.
