Paprika Roasted Mixed Nuts

My first post on roasted nuts was just a simple, basic one. I remember the first time we visited a local farmers market and there was this man who roasted various types of nuts at the market with different sorts of flavour. His stall was very popular and I understood why as soon as I tasted the samples he had on hand. Caramel, honey, tamari, hot and spicy, wasabi and more. However, I cannot remember if he had any that is with paprika. My intention was to use smoked paprika but then I realised that I didn’t have any in my pantry, except just the normal paprika. Well…normal it is.

Paprika Roasted Mixed Nuts

Ingredients

500 gm Raw Mix Nuts
1 teaspoon Paprika
1 tablespoon Grapeseed Oil
Salt

Method

1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. In a large bowl, toss mix nuts, paprika, oil to combine and season with salt.
3. On a baking pan, spread the nuts evenly. Place them in the oven and stir occasionally. Roast for about 5 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned.
3. While it is still hot, sprinkle some salt and let it cool. Store the nuts in an airtight container.

The paprika is very mild to the taste, while the salt covering these roasted nuts gives that expected crunchiness with freshly roasted nuts. What I enjoy with this blend is that the flavour is not overpowering but enough to give that pleasant taste.
