  1. Preheat oven to 180 C (350 F).
  2. Spread hazelnuts on a baking sheet and toast in oven for 5 to 10 minutes (watch carefully as they burn very quickly).
  3. When they are lightly toasted, remove from oven and roll hazelnuts between a few sheets of paper towel or in a dry tea towel to remove most of the skins.
  4. Sort nuts from skins, discard skins and set nuts aside.
  5. Zest and juice 1 lemon.
  6. Place zest, juice, hazelnuts and remaining ingredients, except remaining lemon, into a food processor and pulse until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
  7. Thinly slice second lemon and layer into bottom of a lightly oiled shallow baking dish.
  8. Place turkey breast on top of lemon slices and evenly press nut crust over top of entire breast.
  9. Bake in oven for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer registers 74 C (165 F). If crust starts to brown, cover lightly with a piece of foil or parchment paper.
  10. Let rest for 5 minutes after removing from oven, slice against grain and serve.
