Global Shrimp: Haricots Verts, Chickpeas, Feta with a Korean Marinade

Shrimp, Haricots Verts, Chickpeas
Soy Soju Marinade
Feta, Gochugaru, and Sesame Seeds

The classic Greek pairing of shrimp and feta, along with French haricots verts, Indian chickpeas, and a Korean soju & soy marinade result in a side dish most likely to attract attention. This global amalgamation of ingredients is finished with a sprinkling of toasted sesame seeds and gochugaru, a Korean red chile powder that is barely spicy, and somewhat sweet and smoky. Served at room temperature – it’s a fusion dish that would make a terrific addition to any buffet, BBQ, or picnic.

Haricots Verts:

  • 12 oz. french green beans
  • 1 1/2 T. leek, finely sliced
  • 2 t. garlic, minced
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • 1 T. sesame oil
  • 2 T. soju
  • sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Place haricots verts on a sheet of aluminum foil. Top with leek and garlic. Sprinkle soy sauce, oils, and soju over the beans. Season to taste with sea salt and pepper.

Fold the foil to make a tight package and place on a baking sheet. Cook in a 400° oven for about 10 minutes or until the beans are tender.

Place haricots verts along with the marinade in a large bowl and let come to room temperature.

  1. I think I will make this for my Memorial Day party! :)
    Thanks LL. xo

    Looking beautifully appetizing as usual, I would be very happy to have this as a main dish rather than a side. Have never thought of cooking green beans ‘en papillote’ – have some at home: shall try tomorrow :) ! There is ‘fusion’ and ‘fusion’ – this one obviously works!!

  3. I’ve never heard of gochugaru, but now you have me wanting to find it and make this dish. I’m going to ask my Korean neighbor if she has any!
