Recipes from 8/26/17 by Chef Michelle Bernstein
2 cups pecan pieces
¾ cup powdered sugar
Oil for frying
Heat a medium pot of water to a boil. Add a big pinch of salt. Add the pecan pieces and boil for 2 minutes. Remove the pecans using a spider or strain the water, reserving the pecans.
Immediately place in a bowl and add the powdered sugar. Stir the pecan and sugar together continuously until the sugar is completely melted, this might take 2-3 minutes. Using a pot with oil heated to 350°F or a tabletop fryer; fry the pecans until golden brown, about 2-4 minutes. Fry the pecans in small batches as the oil will bubble up once you add the pecans. Using a spider remove the pecans and set aside on a sheet tray that has been lightly sprayed with nonstick cooking spray or lined with a Silpat and allow to cool.
