Description

These peanuts are seriously addictive. Wok-roasting raw peanuts just gives them this amazing flavor that you won’t get anywhere else. You’ll see these as an appetizer given out at some Chinese restaurants, and I’ve been eating them since I was a kid. They’re so good. Here’s my mom’s recipe.

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Shelled Raw Peanuts (with Pink "skins" Still On)
  • 1 Tablespoon Oil
  • ½ teaspoons Salt (or More To Taste)

Preparation

Rinse the peanuts and pat them thoroughly dry.

Heat up your wok over low heat, and make sure it’s also completely dry. Add oil and the peanuts. Keep stirring continuously for about 15-20 minutes until the outsides start to get darker and the peanuts get really fragrant. It may seem like a long time to stand at the stove stirring, but it’s totally worth it.

Add the sea salt, mix well and turn off the heat. Let the peanuts cool completely (they get really hot during the cooking process, so handle with care). After they’re cooled, the peanuts will have that great crunch that you’re looking for.

These sound awesome! Do you remove the peanuts from the wok to let them cool?
