DIY Siracha Salt
- Siracha Sauce
- Large Grained Salt (Like sea salt or kosher salt)
- Baking Sheet
- Bag (or something to store the extra in, small jars)
1. Pour salt into bowl. If the grains are too big, crush in mortar and pestle (aka the thing you use to crush up herbs - we have this one)
2. Pour Siracha into bowl. Depending on how hot you want the salt, tasting is the best way to tell if you have enough Siracha. Only taste after you have mixed.
3. Mix. The easiest way to do this is with your hands. Mix until all the salt has a nice coating of Siracha. Add more Siracha to taste, repeating Step 2 and Step 3. I thought the siracha would lose its spiciness when it dried, but I was wrong. The amount of spiciness you taste before is more or less what you'll get after you bake it.
4. Spread Siracha Salt over baking sheet in thin layer. The easiest way I found to do this is put down a piece of tin foil down and then spread the siracha salt over the tin foil.
5. Bake on 350° for 3 mins. After the 3 mins, take out and if salt is still wet, put in for 1 min. Repeat until salt is dry. I left mine in for 3 mins, stirred it, and then put it back in for 2 mins. I like mine a tad bit brown on the edges because it gives the salt a smoky flavor. Don't burn the salt, it will burn and turn brown/black!
6. Put in cute container to use!
