Spicy Kaffir Lime Peanuts | http://saltandwind.com

Hands down one of our favorite parts of Bangkok is the Chao Phraya riverfront. Lined with tall high rises and constantly bustling with everything from long tail boats to barges and one-man row boats, you could people watch for hours on end, preferably with a good long drink and snack. On a recent trip to Bangkok, we frequented the river bar at the Hotel Shangri La which was always quiet. Sitting there with a Passionfruit Mojito or a Lemongrass Gin + Tonic and snacking on these spicy, salty peanuts was pretty much the perfect break from the never-ending pace of Bangkok. 

Ingredients

  • 12 ounces shelled raw peanuts
  • 10 kaffir lime leaf

    sliced into thin strips

  • 1 medium lemongrass stalk

    ends trimmed, outer leaves peeled then rest thinly sliced

  • 10 dried chile de arbol

    crumbled

  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt

    plus more for garnish

Instructions

Heat the oven to 350°F and arrange a rack in the middle. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl and mix until well coated. Roast until the peanuts are golden brown and everything is fragrant, about 20 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool. 

Tip

Peanuts can be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
