  1. 1. In a nonstick pan over high heat, toast peanuts for 2 to 3 minutes, shaking pan or stirring often until nuts begin to smell toasty. Pour into a bowl and set aside.
  2. 2. Decrease heat under pan to medium and sprinkle sugar, cayenne pepper and salt evenly into it. Melt mixture slowly, stirring a bit with a heat-proof silicone spatula. When sugar has melted, add peanuts to pan and coat well. Mixture might clump a bit.
  3. 3. Pour nuts onto parchment paper. As soon as mixture is cool enough to handle, break apart any clumps of peanuts. Serve with wedges of lime. Squeeze lime over nuts right before eating.
  4. Yield: 1 cup.
