Prepare a large bowl with ice and water.
Bring a large pot of water to a rapid boil. Place green beans in water and blanch until still crisp (its about enough time if the water has started to boil again, but about 3 – 4 minutes -- Do not over cook the beans!). Immediately remove from boiling water and place in ice water bath until cool, then remove and let dry in strainer. Refrigerate until needed.
Mince the garlic with a knife. In a small pan, heat olive oil and add the minced garlic. Saute for about 1 minute, you want to just cook garlic enough to remove the bitterness, remove from heat and add Smoked olive oil which should quickly cool the sizzling garlic
Add salt (I use at least 1 tsp) and stir. Let cool completely.
Place beans in a sealed container and pour in the cooled poached garlic mixture, shake vigorously. Place beans in alignment on a serving plate, then sprinkle with hazelnuts.
