Finishing salt seems to be the craze these days. You know, put a final sprinkling of salt over your prepared food. Often times it will be a Himalayan Pink Salt or a French Fleur de Sel. I admit, my taste buds aren’t so refined that I could tell you what it was if I were blind-folded, but this Sriracha Finishing Salt is the exception to the rule.
4-5 tablespoons sea salt
1 tablespoon Sriracha Sauce
Begin by adding 4 tablespoons of sea salt to a small bowl. Add the Sriracha Sauce and mix thoroughly until it is evenly combined with the salt. Depending on the type sea salt you use, the mixture may be too wet, so add another tablespoon of salt, if needed, and mix well.
Spread the salt thinly over a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and let it dry for a minimum of 24 hours. Mine took 48 hours but I used a naturally harvested salt that was much “wetter” than normal salt.
When the salt has thoroughly dried, place into a 4 oz jar. This is great over veggies, fish, popcorn, and makes a great gift for that special chef you know.
