Peel and finely chop both the shallot and the garlic cloves. Trim the ends of the green beans.
In a frying pan, heat 1 ½ tbsp of olive oil over low-medium heat. Add the beans and shallot. Sauté for about 5 minutes. The garlic will burn if it cooks too long so make sure the beans are at least halfway cooked before adding it. Add the garlic and continue to cook until the beans soften and the shallot begins to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Cook until beans are your desired level of doneness.
Add in the salt, almonds and butter. Toast the almonds for 1-2 minutes.
