  • 3-4 slices bacon
  • 1 lb beans, blanched green (preferably thin french, blanched for 5-6 minutes in boiling salted water)
  • ½ whole lemon juice
  • To taste sea salt, or kosher
  • To taste pepper freshly ground black


  • In a heavy skillet or pot over medium heat, render the bacon slices slowly. Once the bacon is crispy, remove it from the skillet, chop, and reserve.
  • While the bacon fat is still hot, add 1 lb of blanched green beans and sauté until slightly charred and cooked. Add the fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.
