Spiced Almonds

Tapas-style almonds are traditionally deep-fried in oil, but this recipe gets the same crunchy results from oven roasting.

Ingredients: 

Ingredients: 

Ingredient Line: 
4 tsp. olive oil
Ingredient Line: 
1 ¼ tsp. hot smoked paprika
Ingredient Line: 
1 tsp. ground cumin
Ingredient Line: 
2 cups blanched whole almonds
Ingredient Line: 
½ tsp. kosher or sea salt, or to taste

Instructions: 

1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Warm oil in small saucepan over low heat. Add paprika and cumin, and stir 1 minute to blend and release flavors. Remove from heat when mixture just begins to bubble. Transfer to medium bowl, and stir in almonds.
2. Transfer almonds to parchment-lined baking sheet, and bake 10 minutes. Sprinkle immediately with salt, and transfer to wire rack. Let dry at least 2 hours before serving.

Comments on this Recipe

They were alright. Maybe I didn't roast mine long enough, but the flavor wasn't that strong.
