Fried Almonds with Smoked Sea Salt
Fried Almonds are simple and delicious! They are ready in a few minutes and make a great appetizer or snack during the holidays and the rest of the year. They are so quick and easy you might feel cheated out of a cooking project! Makes 2 1/2 cups of fried almonds
- 2 ½ cups raw almonds skin on
- ½ cup olive oil
- Smoked sea salt to taste I used Salish Alderwood Smoked Sea Salt from SaltWorks, Inc
Heat the oil in a large cast iron skillet or other heavy skillet over medium-hot heat. When the oil is hot but not smoking add the nuts and cook stirring occasionally. As you cook you may want to turn the heat down.
Cook until the nuts start to color and are toasted through, 6-7 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate lined with paper towels.
Sprinkle on as much salt as you like! (You can also use other fun flavored salts instead.)
Serve warm or cool and store in a container with a tight fitting lid.
