I keep seeing stories and recipes for flavored salts. I thought I would give a few a try; today I went for a cilantro lime combination. I made it when I was ready to use it so I didn’t worry about the moisture from the lime zest or cilantro; I do think I will make a batch ahead and dry it out though to see if it hold the flavor as well as the fresh did.
- 2 tsp fresh cilantro
- 1/2 tsp coarse sea salt
- 1/2 tsp lime zest
In herb grinder (I used a coffee grinder I picked up just for these herb salts) combine all ingredients and grind together. This made the perfect amount for the pound of fish I was fixing for dinner. Very green color and it imparted the flavors into each other very well. I wouldn’t have expected this much difference between grinding everything together and just using each on its own but it definitely made a great flavored salt. I can think of so many things this would be good on or in! Can’t wait to use it again.
