Salted Fried Peanuts – Crunchy and Addictive Snack

Salted fried peanuts are a classic snack you can easily make at home. It combines the addictive crunch of freshly fried peanuts with a perfect pinch of salt. I will also suggest an ingredient you can add to bring the flavors to the next level.

Various cultures enjoy fried peanuts as a snack at parties, gatherings, and sporting events. They are great to have alongside a cold beverage. 

The cooking process cannot be simpler: just deep fry raw peanuts in oil until they are golden brown and crunchy, then toss them with salt while they’re still hot. Try to be patient and avoid frying at too high a temperature since the nuts can burn and taste bitter.

An extra step in this recipe is soaking the peanuts before frying. Vietnamese cooks often do this step so that the peanuts can retain its crunchiness for a long time. I usually make a big batch and store in an airtight container in the fridge, and the peanuts will stay crunchy even after a week.

  • 1 cup raw shelled peanuts (1 heaping cup)
  • 10-12 kaffir lime leaves
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 – 1½ teaspoon salt
