Sriracha Salt / Easy, Tasty (& Pretty) DIY

Sriracha Salt / Easy, Tasty (& Pretty) DIY

I love fancy salts, and Kendrick loves Sriracha…so I thought I’d put the two together as a mini-present for him.

I recently picked up The Sriracha Cookbook, which contains instructions for making Sriracha Salt: all you do is stir together half a cup of salt and 5 tsp Sriracha, spread the mixture a thin layer on a baking sheet covered with wax paper, and let it sit for 1-2 days, stirring once or twice.

I found that the salt got quite stuck-together, so as a final step I rolled it up in a clean tea towel and bashed it with a rolling pin a few times.

Flavored salts, by the way, make excellent DIY gifts or wedding favors. Citrus salts are particularly easy (and pretty) to make: just finely grate some peel off of your desired fruit, let dry, and combine with an equal amount of salt.

    What kind of salt did you use? Rock, kosher or just regular table salt? Can’t wait to try this! My husband love sriracha, so he will love this!

    • Sara

      I found it on another website that said it came from the same cookbook and it said Kosher salt. Hope that helps!

      • Marlo

        It helps! Thank you!

    Who doesn’t live sriracha?  Best tasting hot sauce by far.

  • Brooke Poeppel

    I wonder if you could bake it on a low temp to have it finished in the same day?

    YUM! I had this recipe “pinned”  for the longest time, & didn’t make any until this weekend. The hubs loved it so much, I decided to try making some salt with Tabasco Chipotlé sauce. AWESOME!

    Hi! Nice blog! One question, what kind of license do you use? I mean if I can borrow the sriracha picture (mentioning you of course) for a post in my food blog. Thanks in advance!
