A pinch of heat…

Sriracha salt tackles two food cravings at once – salty and spicy! Plus, there’s a hint of garlic from the Sriracha sauce, too. It’s a simple way to add some flavorful heat to popcorn, eggs, fries, or meats without pulling out the hot sauce bottle. Plus, it just looks good in glass containers showcased in a kitchen. No sea salt? This recipe works well with kosher salt, too.

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  • Add the salt and Sriracha to a bowl and mix thoroughly.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, then spread the Sriracha-salt mix evenly across it.
  • Place the baking sheet into the oven, then turn off the heat immediately, allowing the Sriracha salt to sit in the hot oven to dry out as the oven cools.
  • After 2 hours check the salt for dryness. If still not dry, repeat the above (for a lesser time), or allow the Sriracha salt to dry at room temperature.
