  • 3 cups raw pecans
  • 3-4 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1/4-1/2 tbsp salt Kosher


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Measure out 3 cups of raw pecans and put into 9 X 13 baking dish.
  • Cut up 3 to 4 tablespoons of unsalted butter and drop randomly onto the pecans.
  • Cook in the oven for 5 minutes.
  • Remove and stir well. At this time sprinkle 1/4 tablespoon of Kosher salt over the pecans and stir again.
  • Return to the oven for another 5 minutes.
  • Remove the pan and sprinkle another 1/8 to 1/4 tablespoon of salt over the top and stir well to make sure the pecans are all coated with butter and salt.
  • Return to the oven and cook one last time for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and pour the nuts onto a flat pan or platter covered with paper towels to soak up any excess butter from the nuts.
  • Allow to cool and serve.


Note: You can substitute regular iodized salt for the Kosher if preferred. After bringing the nuts out the final time, you could add additional spices to give the nuts more "heat" or add sugar or cinnamon for a sweet twist. If you don't have pecans, walnuts are similar and might be a good alternative. 
A quick and light snack option: Using a microwave safe dish, take a handful of raw pecans, spray lightly with olive oil, and sprinkle with salt to taste. Then pop them into the microwave for 1 minutes 30 seconds. Let the nuts cool and enjoy!!!
