Bring to a simmer then turn off heat and set aside.

In medium bowl, toss pecans, almonds, seeds and zest together.

Pour butter mixture over and toss well to coat.

Pour nut mixture onto prepared baking tray and spread to a thin layer.

Bake for 10 mins, checking halfway through, stirring occasionally until mixture is golden. Cool completely.
