Stir-Fried Green Beans with Shrimp and Garlic

from Food and Wine

2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 pound large shrimp-shelled, deveined and cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 pound green beans, thinly sliced 1/4 inch thick on an extreme diagonal
1/4 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
1 tablespoon Asian fish sauce
Freshly ground pepper

1) Heat a wok until very hot.
2) Add the vegetable oil and heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and stir-fry for 10 seconds. Add the shrimp and a pinch of salt and stir-fry until the shrimp are just beginning to turn pink, about 30 seconds.
3) Add the green beans and 2 tablespoons of the stock and stir-fry until the beans soften slightly, about 3 minutes. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of stock along with the fish sauce and a generous pinch of pepper and stir-fry until the shrimp are cooked through and the beans are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes longer.
Serve right away.

Bon Appétit!

I paired it with quinoa salad with shiitake mushrooms and fennel.
