    Preheat oven to 350° F.

    Combine the sugar, water, Cajun seasoning, and salt in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook until the sugar mixture bubbles and begins to turn golden (or until a candy thermometer registers 230° F). Remove from heat and stir in the nuts. Pour onto a parchment paper lined baking sheet and separate with two forks. Bake for 5 minutes. Cook completely on the baking sheet before storing in an airtight container.
