Blackened Green Beans

Oh, I love these beans. They have kick. A lot of kick. And you will want to eat them like you'd eat your favorite chips - one after another.

The original recipe came from Guy Fieri. You can substitute pre-mixed blackening seasoning if you don't want to make your own.

  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 3 cups green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan

1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add 1 teaspoon of the salt.

2. Fill a large bowl with ice and water.

3. Add the beans to the boiling water and cook for 2-3 minutes. Drain and put into the ice water bath.

4. In another large bowl, combine the spices.Add beans and toss to coat.

5. Heat the oil in a large saute pan over very high heat.

6. Add beans to pan and cook until the spices start to blacken, 2-4 minutes. They'll smoke, but that's ok.

7. Remove from heat and add in the butter.

8. Serve sprinkled with the cheese.
