Almendras Fritas - Fried Almonds

Fried almonds or "almendras fritas" can be eaten warm just after frying or at room temperature. They are a tasty treat, and take about 5 minutes to make.


225g /2 cups (blanched almonds)
3-4 Tbsp olive oil
salt to taste


Pour olive oil into a medium non-stick frying pan with a heavy bottom.
Place on medium heat and be sure that olive oil coats the entire bottom of the pan.
When pan is hot, add almonds and “sauté” them, stirring often until all sides are golden brown. (watch them closely to make sure they don’t get too brown)
Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon or spatula and place on paper towels, spreading them out to drain. Sprinkle with salt and serve.
