In a small bowl mix oil with garlic purée, lemon juice, oregano, thyme, sea salt and pepper. Pour into a flat nonporous glass dish and add lamb medallions; toss to coat well with marinade, cover dish with cling film or aluminium foil and refrigerate to marinate for 30 minutes, up to 4 hours.
Heat oil in a large frying pan and fry shallots or onions for a few minutes, until soft. Add water and chicken stock and stir to dissolve, then add green beans, garlic, oregano, thyme and sun-dried tomatoes. Mix well, cover and cook over medium heat for 6 to 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Heat a large frying pan over high heat and sear the marinated lamb medallions by cooking for 2 minutes per side (for medium rare).
Sprinkle each lamb medallion with salt and arrange meat with beans on plates (heated if possible). Serve immediately.
