Have you ever been in one of those shops that sells spice blends, infused salts, finishing sugars, and dried herbs? The ones that have perfectly adorable jars of spices lined up all over its shelves, such as the Spice & Tea Exchange or World Spice Merchants? Whenever I enter one of those stores I have to resist the urge to buy ALL THE SPICES!

A lot of the spices in those stores are well worth the money, especially exotic ones that I can’t find at the regular grocery stores. But some things? Some of them make me think ”Are they for realz charging $20 for a 4-pack of tiny flavored salts or sugars??”

Even though the price is pretty high, I still consider getting the delicious sounding finishing salts and sugars. But then I talk myself out of it – No Kate, you can make these yourself for less than half the price!

So that’s exactly what I’ve been doing – playing around with infusing salts, sugars, and making my own spice mixes. And this Sriracha Finishing Salt is one of the simplest yet most versatile finishing salts that I have made. It has a gorgeous orange-red sriracha color that makes it a beautiful topping for a lot of dishes and veggies. And the lovely kick from sriracha is just enough to add a little something extra to any dish without overpowering it with spice.

One great thing about using finishing salts is that it can actually help you lower the amount of sodium you use in your cooking: a tiny pinch of finishing salt on top adds a lot more flavor to your dish than adding salt while cooking, so you can use much less and still make your food taste deeelicious.

Plus it’s fancy and fun to make! That should be reason enough to make a batch of this delicious Sriracha Finishing Salt. 🙂

Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, mix together the sea salt and the Sriracha. Allow to dry on the counter top for at least 24 hours, stirring every few hours to keep the sea salt flaky. You may cover the Sriracha finishing salt loosely with a paper towel while drying. to keep dust out. Store in an airtight container.

Notes

You can make as much or as little of this Sriracha Finishing Salt as you want - just use a ratio of 4:1 Salt:Sriracha. If you are making more than 4 tablespoons, spread the salt out to try on a plate or on aluminum foil so it dries faster.
