Green beans add snap and color to the garlicky shrimp and butter beans in this Spanish-inspired sauté. Slightly pricier prepeeled shrimp are worth it, given the amount of time they save on a harried weeknight. Serve with quinoa or brown rice.

I just made this and it was good. the key to me is fresh butter beans, or cannellini beans, they need to be crisp. Timing is impotent too because when its time things need to be ready. I will make again.


Made this tonight - we loved it. I used half the parsley and added about 3 T lemon juice and mixed it up right before serving - it added a light tang to it. Will definitely make this again.


I didn't have any garlic or paprika so I substituted garlic powder and cajun seasoning. I also added some onion powder. I added the full amount of red wine vinegar and it was fine. I also put some bacon in the microwave until it was crispy and sprinkled it on top. I will definitely make it again. My husband loved it. I guess the people complaining about the red wine and garlic probably don't cook with those ingredients much so it may seem a little strong to them. Just use slightly less than recipe calls for.


My boyfriend and I made this last night and thought it was delicious! I loved the flavor and the addition of the cannelini beans. We used a little more paprika and a little less red wine vinegar based on the other comments. Came out great! It is also extremely fast and easy to make.


I just made this last night. Very quick and easy to make. We loved it! My husband even went back for a second serving. I did reduce the amount of oil but otherwise it is a very barriatric surgery friendly recipe. Lots of protein! I plan to make this the next time we have guests over for dinner.
