How To Make fried almond tapas
1Over medium heat, in a small saute pan so the almonds are a bit crowded, pour a generous 1/4 cup of EVOO and the almonds.
2Keep the almonds moving, constantly stirring them in the oil. It might seem like there is too much oil, but it's OK.
3Keep frying the almonds, constantly stirring and mixing. They will start to sizzle in the oil, and this is what you want. After 5 or 6 minutes they should be a light golden color. (Once they begin to turn golden they go pretty fast. I had to adjust my heat to low so they wouldn't get too dark too fast.) Do not overcook as they can become bitter.
4With a slotted spoon, transfer the almonds to a paper towel-lined tray and immediately sprinkle with sea salt. Shake the tray to disperse the salt through the almonds.
5Allow to cool for at least 10 minutes and transfer to serving dish.
