Spicy Green Bean Sambal

This easy side dish of spicy green beans takes minutes to cook but adds a wealth of flavour to barbecued fish or char-grilled lobster.


Spicy Green Bean Sambal
Recipe type: Sambal
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
  • 2½ cm piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3 teaspoons chilli paste, or to taste
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 160 g small green runner beans, topped and tailed
  • ½ red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • sea salt, to taste
  1. Place the ginger and garlic in a mortar and pound with a pestle until a smooth paste forms. Stir in the chilli paste.
  2. Heat the oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Add the beans and ginger mixture, and cook for 1-2 minutes or until fragrant.
  3. Add the onion and cook for another 1 minute, then remove from the heat.
  4. Toss through the lemon rind and juice.
  5. Season with sea salt to taste and serve immediately.
If you can't find small runner beans, just use the freshest small beans you can find. A combination of green and butter beans gives a lovely contrasting look.
