Salt and ground black pepper

(See recipe for Blanched Green Beans in this cookbook.)
1. Heat butter in small heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat and cook, swirling frequently, until butter turns deep chocolate brown and becomes fragrant, 4 to 5 minutes. Add hazelnuts and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant and combined, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
2. Meanwhile, heat 1/4 cup water and beans in 12-inch skillet over high heat; cook, tossing frequently, until beans are warmed through, about 1 to 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste and arrange neatly on warm serving platter. Top beans with toasted hazelnuts and brown butter and serve immediately.
