  1. Toss the shrimp, minced garlic, and thyme in a medium bowl and set aside.
  2. To prepare the dressing, whisk together 4 tablespoons olive oil, parsley, the lemon zest and juice in a small bowl. Season to taste with sea salt and fresh pepper. Set aside.
  3. Heat a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and about 1/3 of the greens.

Reduce the heat under the pan. Add the shrimp and cook, turning with the tongs, and cook until pink, about 1 minute. Add the beans and wilted greens, cooking until warm. Return to bowl and toss with the lemon dressing. Serve immediately.
