Garlic and Ginger Roasted Peanuts Recipe



1 lb Raw Peanuts
5-6 Garlic Cloves, crushed
1″ Fresh Ginger, finely grated
2 T Oil, grape seed or peanut oil preferably
2 T Soy Sauce
1/2 T Fish Sauce (trust me, you won’t even know it’s there, but it will give an extra element of happy mouth)
1/2 T Granular Sugar
sea salt & fresh cracked pepper to taste
1. Preheat oven to 325° F. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper, then put peanuts on sheetpan. Dry roast for 15 min.
2. While the peanuts begin to roast, mix everything else except for the salt and pepper in a medium bowl.  After first 15 min. remove roasted peanuts from oven, mix the peanuts with the marinade, pour back onto sheet pan, then return to oven.  Continue to roast for 10-15 move minutes, or until the peanuts are a light golden brown color.  Take them out a little before you think they are perfect, because they will continue to cook on their own a little more after being removed from oven.
3.  Allow to cool, then season with salt and pepper. Store airtight at room temperature for 1-2 weeks.
