Five spice cripy peanuts
Serving Size: 
Preparation Time: 
10 minutes
  • 1 pack of 12 oz raw peanuts with or without skin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp 5-spice powder



The main merit of this dish is that it saves the time and work of cleaning the pot or pan compared to roasting peanuts the traditional way. And unlike the roasting, this won't burn the peanuts at all!

  1. Wash peanuts a couple of times. Drain water and place peanuts in a ceramic plate.
  2. Add salt and 5-spice powder to peanuts. Stir peanuts to mix salt and spice  with peanuts evenly.
  3. Microwave peanuts in the plate for 3 minutes.
  4. Take the plate out and let peanuts cool down. When peanuts are cold, taste to see if peanuts are crispy enough. If not, microwave for a few more seconds.
  5. That's it. Enjoy your crispy peanuts!
