How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°F. Combine chopped pecans, olive oil, kosher salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper in a medium bowl, and toss to coat. Spread coated pecans in a single layer on a rimmed baking sheet, and bake in preheated oven until pecans are deeply toasted, about 15 minutes, stirring once. Let cool 5 minutes. Store in an airtight container at room temperature up to 4 days.
