This is a really flavorful, heart healthy dish. Not only does it taste fantastic but the aromas while cooking are simply heavenly.
Very simple preparation and quick cooking time makes this an easy light dinner.
Bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put green beans in a steamer basket, place in the pan, cover and steam until tender-crisp, 4 to 6 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and paprika and cook, stirring constantly, until just fragrant but not browned, about 20 seconds. Add shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Stir in butter beans and vinegar; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup carrots.
Divide the green beans among 4 plates. top with the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup carrots.
