Savory Roasted Pecans Recipe

These savory roasted pecans are rich, buttery, slightly smoky and oh-so-addictive!


  • 4 cups raw pecan halves
  • 6 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp smoked sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika


  1. Preheat oven to 275.
  2. Put pecans in a large mixing bowl
  3. Melt butter and pour over pecans, stir well until pecans are completely coated
  4. sprinkle with smoked salt and paprika and mix thoroughly

  5. spread pecans on lined baking sheets. I use 2 baking sheets for this many pecans and make sure they are well spaced and not on top of each other
  6. Bake for a total of 1 hour, stirring after the first 30 minutes, then again at the 45 minute mark.
  7. Remove from oven after 1 hour (and stirring twice)
  8. Immediately move pecans to a cooling rack or a sheet of parchment paper
  9. Eat 1 (or 10) while warm (because they are amazing fresh out of the oven)
  10. Once cooled store in an airtight container.
