Make hot and spicy Sriracha salt

By on Jun 4th

What you're seeing above is a jar of spicy Sriracha salt from event designer Chandra Keel that would make a very useful culinary addition to your kitchen.

What is Sriracha, you say? Sriracha is the hot chili sauce that you'll see in tons of restaurants (especially Thai) and is de rigueur among foodies these days. People love it so much they put it in spray bottles. And even The Oatmeal loves it. I'm a little wimpy when it comes to spice, but having something Sriracha makes mouths happy in a hurts-so-good kind of way.

Here's the recipe. Chandra Keel

1/2 cup coarse kosher salt
5 tsp sriracha

Combine the salt with the sriracha and mix thoroughly.
Spread out the mixture on a baking dish and set in a warm, dry location.
Let dry for 1-2 days (I let it sit out for 2 days, but it was pretty dry after 1 day).
