Instructions
  1. Before starting, prepare a large bowl of ice water.
  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil, and add about 2 teaspoons of sea salt. Add the green beans, cover, and bring back to a boil. Remove the cover and cook the beans for about 4 minutes until they are fork tender but still bright green in color. Immediately drain in a colander, and then plunge the beans in the ice water to chill and set the color.

  4. Meanwhile, melt all but a teaspoon or so of the butter in a sauté pan until it becomes brown and nutty in aroma. Add the mushrooms and sauté over high heat to brown. Sprinkle with a little salt. Drain the green beans well, then add to the mushrooms in the pan and toss and turn until coated in brown butter and are heated all the way through. Season with salt and nutmeg.
  5. In a separate skillet, melt the remaining butter. Add the almonds and cook, stirring, until golden brown. Put the beans on a platter and top with the almonds. Serve hot.
