1 pound of French green beans
1 yuzu
2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper


First, zest the yuzu. Then, squeeze out the yuzu juice and put it along with the zest in a ramekin. Add the olive oil, salt and pepper and mix with a fork.

Clean the beans, then steam them for about 5 minutes until cooked but still crispy. Once the beans are cooked, toss with the yuzu olive oil mixture.

This can be served hot or refrigerated for up to two days and served cold.

Serves 4.
