Colatura Roasted Green Beans with Hazelnuts

Makes 4-6 Servings

Blanched, then broiled, these green beans get extra umami from colatura, a special Italian fish sauce that’s much less intense than the Southeast Asian varieties.

Colatura Roasted Green Beans w/ Hazelnuts
  • 2lbs Green Beans
  • Juice of ½ Orange
  • Two 4” strips of Orange Zest
  • 2 tbsp Colatura Fish Sauce
  • Black Pepper
  • ¾ cup toasted, chopped Hazelnuts
  • ¼ cup Olive Oil



Trim one end off each green bean.  Cut the orange zest into very thin strips (julienne).

Blanch the green beans in boiling water for one minute, then shock them in an ice water bath.

Preheat your oven’s broiler.

Remove the green beans from the ice water.  Toss them with the orange juice, orange zest, colatura, olive oil and black pepper to taste.

Spread the beans out on a baking sheet in a single layer.

Broil the green beans on the top rack of the oven until they blister and turn brown in spots (about five minutes)

Taste the beans and add additional salt or pepper as needed.  Serve sprinkled with the hazelnuts.
