1 t sea salt
1 lb. green beans

Sea salt and pepper
Directions:   In a covered saucepan, bring 3 or 4 inches of water and the salt to a boil. Rinse the green beans and trim the stem ends. When the water boils, add the green beans and cook until tender, 5 to 7 minutes.

While the beans are cooking, grate the lemon peel and juice the lemon and set aside. You'll need 1 1/2 T lemon juice and about 1 1/2 t lemon zest.

When the beans are tender, drain them and return them to the pan. Add the olive oil or butter and the lemon juice and toss to coat. Add salt and pepper to taste. Serve sprinkled with the lemon zest.
