With the smoker perfuming the air like the wood burning fire place we wish we had, all kinds of foodstuffs were getting there smoke on. While we have enjoyed Smokey Blue, a cheese smoked with hazelnut shells we have continued to leave smoked hazelnuts off our to do list, until today. We had some space in the smoker and some hazelnuts in the cupboard. The smoked nuts are great as is. Thankfully we cannot leave great alone and looked to further uses for this delicious nut. The hazelnuts worked out wonderfully zested over raw fish as well as tenderized in a pressure cooker and mimicking the aesthetic and place of chickpeas. These are our first encounters, we are looking forward to the growing relationship.
