Recipe by Marco Canora, from A Good Food Day
Makes 2 cups
Grated zest of 1 lime
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
4 tsp. curry powder
1 1/2 tsp. fine sea salt
2 c. raw cashews
Many ovens don't cook evenly, so it's important to shake the nuts around a few times while they roast. Pay special attention to the nuts near the edges of the pan, since those tend to brown more quickly.
Preheat the oven to 300° F.
In a large bowl, combine the lime zest, lime juice, curry powder and salt. Add the cashews and toss to coat.
Spread the nuts in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast, stirring every 10 minutes, until the cashews are lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Cool to room temperature, then store in an airtight container.
