This recipe is a great snack for parties. Pistachios give you fiber and antioxidants, both of which are important to a healthy diet.
- 3/4 cup honey
- 2 Tbsp. teriyaki sauce
- 2 Tbsp. sesame seeds
- 1 to 1 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
- 1 lb. bag in shell Pistachios
- 1/4 cup raw sugar
Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking time: 20 – 25 minutes
Preheat oven to 300F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small saucepan, combine honey, teriyaki sauce, sesame seeds and red pepper flakes. Heat until mixture is hot and smooth; stirring often (about 3 minutes). Add pistachios; stir to coat well. In a large bowl, add raw sugar. Add coated pistachios and stir to coat well. Evenly spread pistachios over baking sheets. Bake 20-25 minutes. Cool completely (pistachios will harden as they cool). Store in a loosely covered container for up to two weeks.
Serving Suggestion: Try a savory variation to this recipe. Adding a few teaspoons of fresh orange zest to the sauce gives this more of an Asian flair.
