Paprika Shrimp & Green Bean Sauté

Paprika Shrimp & Green Bean Sauté

2 cups green beans, trimmed (about 6 ounces)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1 teaspoon paprika
1/2 pound large shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined
1 16-ounce can large butter beans or cannellini beans, rinsed
2 tablespoons sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar
1⁄4 teaspoon salt
1⁄4 cup chopped parsley, divided
Freshly ground pepper to taste

Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put green beans in a steamer basket, place in the pan, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.  Meanwhile, heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and paprika and cook, stirring constantly, until just fragrant but not browned, about 20 seconds. Add shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Stir in butter beans (or cannellini), vinegar and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in 2 tablespoons parsley.  Divide green beans among 2 plates. Top with the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with pepper and the remaining 2 tablespoons parsley and serve.
