I found this recipe online and changed it to provide a sweeter note utilizing Oranges and Pomelos in addition to tweaking the dressing by adding Seafood Seasoning & Yuzu Rice Vinegar. You can add any honey you desire, the more fragrant the honey the better the roasted nuts will taste.

Yuzu Rice Vinegar has a fruity note to it, if you cannot find any then substitute regular rice wine vinegar and add an additional teaspoon of grated Orange zest.
