Cajun Spiced Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Roasted pumpkin seeds are a delicious, filling snack. Skip the typical salt, and grab the Cajun spice instead and turn them into a tasty, new savory snack.
- 1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
- 1 scant teaspoon Cajun seasoning or to taste
- 1/4 tsp paprika
- salt to taste
- 2 liberal dashes Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp melted butter
Rinse the seeds well and remove as much of the pumpkin pulp from them as possible. Some of the small pieces are going to adhere, but they won’t hurt anything. Think of those teensy, tiny pieces as flavor booster. Pat the cleaned seeds dry with paper towels. Do this quickly so they don’t stick too much.
Toss the pumpkin seeds with the seasonings. Stir together the melted butter and Worcestershire, and then stir them into the seeds until they’re evenly coated.
Roast the seeds at 300 degrees, stirring & turning from time to time, like every 20 minutes, for about 45 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and crunchy.
