Spiced Almonds

Makes 2 cups

Tapas-style almonds are traditionally deep-fried in oil, but this recipe gets the same crunchy results from oven roasting.
  • 4 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 ¼ tsp. hot smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 2 cups blanched whole almonds
  • ½ tsp. kosher or sea salt, or to taste

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.
