Jumbo Shrimp, Green beans,and Herbs

There is nothing better than the scent of herbs that courses through great tasting dishes, and with the dish I'm going to be talking about today has some of the tastiest herbs around I'm talking about a blend of freshly chopped parsley, tarragon, chervil, and chives. As tarragon is very pungent, it should not account for more than one part, assuming there are two parts of chervil and three each of parsley and chives Bringing all of these herbs together with some Jumbo Shrimp, and Green beans you have a making for a real great meal.

Chervil is the mostdelicate herb within this mix, if you can grow it the you should, It's a vey wonderful herb, like soft leaf parsley with hints of aniseed, now if you can't find this in the area where you leave it's ok because you can just use the other three and itstill will be fabulous.
