Directions:
1) In a 12 inch skillet, heat the butter and oil over medium-low heat until the butter melts and the foam subsides. Add the almonds and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown all over, about 3 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate.
2) Add the beans, cook to desired level of crispness/softness. Add the garlic and saute about another minute, add the lemon juice and stir. Put on a platter…or your plate, add the toasted slivered almonds and voila! Very tasty…
