Coarse grain salt
450g French beans, trimmed
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tbsp water
2 tsp toasted sesame oil
1/2 tsp cornflour
1/8 to 1/4 tsp chilli flakes
2 tsp vegetable oil
3 medium shallots, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic, chopped
10g chopped fresh ginger
15g sesame seeds
2 tsp rice wine vinegar
1) Bring a large pot of cold water to the boil over high heat and salt it generously. Add the beans, and cook, uncovered, until just tender, about 6 to 8 minutes. Drain and rinse under cold water, set aside.

2) Whisk the soy sauce, water, sesame oil, cornflour, and chilli flakes in a small bowl.

3) Heat the vegetable oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet. Add the shallots, garlic, ginger, and sesame seeds and cook until the vegetables are golden, about 3 minutes.

4) Stir in the French beans and soy sauce mixture, bring to the boil, and cook until the French beans glaze, about 1 minute. Sprinkle with the vinegar and serve immediately.
