On parchment paper-lined or greased rimmed baking sheet, toast almonds in 350°F (180°C) oven, stirring occasionally, until fragrant, about 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, in large bowl, combine sugar, salt and ginger; set aside.
In saucepan, bring water, honey and oil to boil; reduce heat to medium-low. Add almonds, stirring to coat; simmer, stirring, until almost no liquid remains, about 3 minutes. Add to sugar mixture; toss to coat well.
Spread on same baking sheet, separating nuts; let cool. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 week.)
