Ever since I first made Union Square Nuts thanks to Nigella Lawson via her Aussie Almost-Alter Ego Lorraine I just can't do 'regular nuts' anymore.
So tonight my friends, to celebrate the end of the office working week, and the commencement of the weekend I urge you all to grab a glass of your favourite poison (now I'm off the antibiotics I will surely be joining you!) and quickly knock up some of these. You'll be licking those lips as these leave a bit a 'zing' which I love. Not too much mind you - juuuuuuuuuuuuuuussst right.
2 cups Nuts of your choice (peanut, pecan, macadamia and walnuts were my choice but any or a combination of these or maybe some cashews would be fabulous too)
1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tb salt flakes or finely ground sea salt
1 1/2 tsp lime juice
1/4 tsp lime zest (1/2 a limes' worth)
1 tsp tabsco sauce
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
Preheat oven to 200 degrees c
Shell nuts if necessary and then lay on baking tray
Roast in oven for 8 minutes, then shake the pan and roast for a further 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and place in a bowl, pour over remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly. Eat hot or cool!
So WHAT is your poison? Champagne, cab-sav, pernod or a beer.. or you may be like me a love a vodka cocktail !!?
