Sriracha Salt

Since we went light this last year on Christmas gifts I figured I'd find a way to make something crafty, cheap and on the sly for my dear Tony. I found this recipe for sriracha salt on pinterest (link HERE!) and since my lovely husband LOVES sriracha sauce I figured it'd be perfect. We had plenty of salt and an unopened bottle of regular sriracha rooster sauce ready for this project. All I had to do was find a container which I could have just used something we already had but I chose to splurge $1 on a cute bottle at the craft store.

Recipe
1/2 cup of any chunky salt
5 tsp sriracha sauce

Basically you combine the salt and the rooster sauce in a bowl, then spread it out on a parchment paper lined tray for 2 days. It takes a couple days for the salt to absorb all the liquid. Stir occasionally. Once done put salt in cute jar for storage.

I managed to hide this from Tony by putting it high up in a cabinet so he wouldn't find it. You should stir the salt a few times so it de-clumps over the 2 day period. You can use any type of salt you have around; we used a chunk style one that possibly came from Crate & Barrel but any salt should work. Also note that you need to use the smooth sriracha sauce, not the garlic chunky version (which is also good btw). It came out great! Very flavorful and bright. It works great on everything we'd normally use salt and sriracha for! Pasta, pizza, eggs, veggies etc all work well. Best thing about this gift is that it keeps giving and it was almost free!

  2. That's neat. A friend of mine loves sriracha. I wonder if she'd like this. I'll have to carefully question her about her salt habits sometime soon.
