  • 3 Tbsp Salted butter, divided *
  • 2 Oz Prosciutto, chopped
  • 2 Small shallots, thinly sliced
  • 1 Lb Green beans, trimmed
  • Salt and pepper


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt 1 Tbsp of the butter. When the froth beings to subside, add the prosciutto and shallots. Cook until the prosciutto is crispy, about 3 minutes.  Remove the prosciutto and shallots from the pan.
  • Add the remaining 2 Tbsp of butter and let it melt. Add the green beans and saute until tender and just a little browned, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Add the prosciutto and shallots back to the pan and toss to combine.  Season to taste with salt and pepper.


You can easily make this recipe paleo and dairy-free by replacing the butter with coconut oil or avocado oil. Avocado oil is more neutral in flavor, which will allow the prosciutto and shallots to shine through. *
