No holiday reception or party should be without flavourful nuts, and these garlic peanuts, which are a staple imbibing companion in the Philippines, make a welcome and tasty gift. Cashews can be prepared in the same fashion.
- Portion size 125 servings
- 10 garlic cloves
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 2 2/3 cups skinned raw peanuts
- 3/4 teaspoons salt preferably sea salt
Smash garlic with side of knife; discard peel and cut into slivers. In wok or skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; stir-fry garlic until golden brown, about 1 minute. Drain in sieve over heatproof bowl; set garlic aside and return oil to pan to reheat until hot.
Stir-fry raw peanuts just until slightly darkened, about 6 minutes. Drain in metal colander or sieve over heatproof bowl; discard oil.
Add garlic and salt to hot peanuts; mix well. Let cool to room temperature. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.)
