- In a large skillet, heat oil over medium high heat until shimmering hot. Add shrimp and cook until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. Then, flip shrimp and cook for 1-2 more minutes.
- Add onions and green beans, and cook until they’ve softened, stirring often, about 2 minutes.
- Turn heat down to medium, add the Omsom starter, and stir to evenly coat everything in the skillet.
- Add red peppers (optional) and roughly hand tear the basil into the skillet. Turn off the heat and stir to wilt the basil.
