- Score a crosshatched pattern into the skin of the duck breast to a depth of 1cm using a sharp knife.
– Put the chopped hazelnuts onto a small plate.

2. Cooking:
Sear the duck breast, skin side down, over a low heat to render the fat and colour the skin.

– At the same time, finish cooking the duck in a pan (5 minutes) or in the oven (5 minutes at 160°C).

3. Plating:
