Fisher Nuts Review

I cook with nuts once in a blue moon, but I’m going to start incorporating them more into my recipes because of the delicious flavour and texture they add. Plus they make ordinary dishes….extraordinary!

I tried Fisher Nuts for the very first time this past weekend. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen I was cooking/baking up a storm! There was no special occasion though. I just wanted to try a few new dishes and my daughter, Bridget was in the mood to be my cooking helper.

Fisher Nuts

Fisher Nuts carries a wide range of nuts for both snacking and cooking. You can find nuts like almonds, hazelnuts, pecans, pine nuts, and more! I tried out three packages of their cooking nuts: Fisher Chef’s Naturals Slivered Almonds, Fisher Chef’s Naturals Pecan Halves and Fisher Chef’s Naturals Walnut Halves & Pieces.

I was brainstorming different ways I could use these nuts in our everyday meals.  How do these ideas sound to you?

  • Pecans on Maple Oatmeal
  • Maple Walnut Pancakes
  • Banana Nut Bread (with walnuts)
  • Chef Salad Topped with Pecans & Almonds
  • Salmon with an Almond Crust
  • Broccoli Salad withPecans
  • Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Slivered Almonds

Hungry yet? Good. I ended up making two of Chef Alex’s recipes: Green Beans Almondine & 3 Nut Pie.

Green Beans Almondine is SO simple!! It’s basically just green beans, butter and slivered almonds. It makes such a pretty side dish don’t you think?

The almonds provide a delicious texture to the dish. I actually had requests from both John and my 8 year old to make this again.

I’ve made Pecan Pie many times before and it’s always been one of my all-time favourite pies. When I saw the 3 Nut Pie, I knew that was the one I wanted to make. It’s basically a Pecan Pie, but with more nuts! It has pecans, walnuts and almonds- yum!

Bridget got her hands on the Pecans and was eating them straight out of the bag. I had to pry them away from her so I’d have some left for the recipes. However, I did sneak a few myself. They are addicting!

Want to try Fisher Nuts for yourself? Find a store that carries them near you.
