With no added fat, these little peanuts pack a punch, especially if you add more cayenne. As these were made as a nibble for one of my youngest sons party they are less spicy to suit the younger taste buds!
375g raw peanuts
4 limes, juiced
1 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoons garlic powder
A pinch of cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper
Preheat your oven to 110 degrees centigrade. Line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
Pour the nuts onto the prepared tray and bake for 30 minutes.
While the nuts cook, mix the lime juice, smoked paprika, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, salt and pepper.
After the thirty minute bake, tip the nuts into the lime mix and tip back onto the tray with the baking parchment still on it.
Return to the oven and bake for 20 minutes.
Allow to cool before serving.
