How to Make It

Step 1    

In a bowl, toss the peanuts and lime juice; let stand for 1 hour, tossing occasionally.

Step 2    

Drain the peanuts and pat dry on paper towels. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the shallots and cook over moderately high heat, stirring, until browned and crisp, about 2 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the shallots to a plate.

Step 3    

Add half of the peanuts to the hot oil and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until golden, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the nuts to paper towels. Season with salt and let cool. Repeat with the remaining peanuts. In a bowl, toss the peanuts with the lime leaves, garnish with the shallots and cilantro and serve.
