OMG!!! I now have another addiction, these fabulous nuts!!!! I bought a bag of almonds, with skins, and used them for this and another recipe. Both are delicious, but these won out my tastes buds for the smokey & salty flavors. I did make mine different also, as I didn't have the blanched almonds, so I put the olive oil in a pan at medium heat and then added the almonds for a few minutes. I then tossed them in a bowl with the salt and paprika and then onto a paper plate lined with a paper towel. This will be made often at my house and is going into my "Best of 2012". Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for ZWT8.
