Shock the beans immediately in Iced water to cool completely. Dry the beans by shaking them in a clean towel. Heat Sesame oil till 378 degrees in large Sauté pan or Wok and drop beans into pan. Stir Fry until beans are slightly scorched, adding the salt and the pinch of red pepper flakes as you stir fry. Add the optional toasted sesame seeds right before serving.
