When you work for the family pecan business, those "super nuts" have a tendency to infiltrate recipes. Which, I don't mind because it just makes traditional dishes a little more creative. When you don't have access to pine nuts for a traditional pesto, consider substituting with pecans. Their high oil content means you won't sacrifice flavor or silkiness. The depth of flavor is robust and chances are you already have pecans in your fridge (yes, that is where they should be stored). Enjoy this quick and delicious pecan pesto!
Bonus tip: Toss the pecans in a skillet over medium heat for a few minutes to unlock their flavor.
