Hot and Salty {Sriracha Salt}

Cooking for fellow food blogger friends this past weekend was so fun.  I wanted to send them home with something and decided it was the perfect opportunity to finally make attempt Sriracha Salt.

Srirachi salt

This recipe is pretty widespread, I certainly did not create it, though I can’t recall where I first saw it.  Likely it was the Sriracha Cookbook. Flavored salts are a great addition to most dishes, my current obsession is popcorn with truffle salt.  Yum!

Making this salt could not be easier. Heat the oven to 200 degrees.  Mix a 1/2 cup Kosher salt with 5 teaspoons of Sriracha.  Spread on a cookie sheet covered with parchment.  Place it in the oven, turn oven off, let it sit overnight.

Breakup all the clumps and enjoy.  I served this with brunch, and while it was great on the eggs and potatoes I loved it on the cantaloupe!  Would be great for rimming a beer margarita, oh and the cooky rooster, of course I have some on my desk at work for my salads, and it would be great on eggs,  on this spicy watermelon salad. Endless possibilities.

    Yep, mine will definitely be put to good use! I think I may split the jar you gave me and keep some at work and some at home! Thanks again Jacky! 😀
