Make Your Own Sriracha Salt

We love Sriracha. We’ve even shown you how you can make your own at home. For an extra kick of that delicious rooster sauce flavour when you don’t really want to add the actual sauce to a dish, why not make your own Sriracha salt?

As Instructables user ColumbusCOOK shows us, making your own Sriracha salt is about as simple as it gets. Fire a healthy squirt of Sriracha sauce into about 1/2 cup of salt and shake it up really well in a sealed container until the sauce permeates the salt. The next step is drying it out and you have two options here. You can spread the mixture out on a baking sheet and let it sit in a cool dry place for 24-36 hours.

Or you can heat your oven up to 180 degrees C, turn it off, and then stash the baking sheet there for about 8 hours. When the salt feels dry, it’s done. Put it in a salt dish or shaker and enjoy!
