Slice the chillies lengthways. Remove the seeds and finely chop. Finely chop the lime leaves. Juice the limes.


Finely grate the palm sugar. Dry toast the shrimp paste in a non-stick pan over a medium heat for approx. 2 minutes or until fragrant.


Combine all the dressing ingredients in a bowl and set aside.


Bring a pot of water to a boil.


Trim the tops of the beans. Blanch in the boiling water for 2 minutes then immediately shock in cold water to retain their colour and prevent further cooking.


Heat the oil in a wok or non-stick pan.


Finely grate in the garlic then add in the green beans and 2 tablespoons of the dressing. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until the beans are cooked and well coated.


Serve immediately.
