  • 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.
