Whats better than nicely salted roasted pistachios? Well lemon roasted salted pistachios…At least for me, since I love lemon on literally everything. But I promise this is something everyone will like.
So it all started when my boyfriend’s dad brought these pistachios from Iran. I noticed that to make the salt stick on the shell, they used lemon. So I decided to roast my own pistachios, shelled, so that the lemon is actually on the nut. It really compliments the pistachio flavor, but be careful not to overdo it with the salt since the lemon almost covers the need for salt!
1+3/4 cup shelled roasted good quality pistachios[unsalted]
1/2 cup lemon juice [2-3 lemons]
1/2 to 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt
Mix together pistachios, salt and lemon and toss well. Place in a baking dish, big enough to fit them on one layer. Place on the bottom of the oven at 60C[140F] for several hours [around three] or until there is not lemon juice water left and pistachios are completely dry.
