Spicy Garlic Peanuts

Photo by: Joseph De Leo

Yield: About 3 cups

INGREDIENTS
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 6 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 6 tablespoons chopped scallions, white and green parts
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cups raw, skin-on peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

Do ahead: Peanuts can be prepared three days ahead and stored in an airtight container.

1. Pour oil in a large sauté pan and warm over moderate heat. Add peanuts in a single layer and cook, shaking pan occasionally, until nuts start to brown, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in lime juice, fish sauce and sriracha, and cook for 1 minute to evaporate some of the moisture. Remove pan from heat, add garlic, and toss well. Add sugar and stir to dissolve. Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer peanuts to a rimmed baking sheet and allow them to cool.

2. Transfer nuts to a bowl and stir in cilantro, scallions, and salt. Stir to distribute ingredients evenly and serve.
