4 cups green beans, trimmed (about 12 ounces)
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup minced garlic
2 teaspoons paprika
1 pound large shrimp (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined
2 16-ounce cans cannellini beans, rinsed
1/4 cup sherry vinegar or red-wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup chopped parsley, divided
Freshly ground pepper to taste

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 cannellini beans, vinegar and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 2 minutes.

Stir in 1/4 cup parsley.

Divide green beans among 4 plates.

Top with the shrimp mixture. Sprinkle with pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup parsley and serve.
