  3. In a large skillet over medium heat, or using a deep fryer heat vegetable oil. Add shrimp in batches and fry for 3-4 minutes, or until golden. Remove with a spatula, or slotted spoon and place on a paper towel lined plate. If using a deep fryer, let shrimp set in fryer basket and then place on plate.
  4. In a large skillet over medium heat, add butter and heat. Add in green beans and let them start to cook. After about 3-5 minutes add garlic and honey. Add a little water cover with lid, and stir often. Green beans are done when they turn bright green. Set aside.
