Here is a quick and easy rosemary almonds recipe that will certainly delight you and your guests the next time you are entertaining.
Whenever I’m throwing a big dinner party (or any other party for that matter), I like to get a little help from the grocery store. My rule of thumb is to make 2 or 3 homemade appetizers and then buy a couple. Semi-homemade hors d’oeuvres are quick to put together and certainly make the entertaining menu easier.
Nuts are in the buy category, even if you have to jazz up their flavor. I like to put out a bowl or two for guests to nibble on throughout the evening. Blanched or Marcona almonds are among my favorites to serve. They’re softer than other almonds and smoother than those with the skin still attached. Marcona almonds soak in added flavors beautifully, making them a delicious small-bite appetizer to serve with your own custom flavor touch. (You can buy Marcona almonds, HERE!)
An herb that pairs so nicely with Marcona almonds is rosemary. To really infuse the flavor into the almonds, warm the rosemary with the olive oil on the stove until small bubbles form around the edge. Once cooled completely, pour the rosemary oil over top of the almonds and stir. Sprinkle with coarse sea salt and you’re good to go. And trust me when I say that no one can eat just one!
Now, how easy is that!!
