SRIRACHA LIME SALT

  1. Heat oven to 200°F.
  2. Spread Sriracha very thinly on a Silpat-lined baking sheet.
  3. Bake 1 hour and 20 minutes or until Sriracha is completely dry. Cool and peel from Silpat. Don’t turn oven off.
  4. Grind to a powder either with a mortar and pestle or in a mini food processor. Be gentle if you use the latter.
  5. Add in salt, juice and zest, then crush or pulse to combine.
  6. Spread mixture back on Silpat and bake at 200°F for 1 ½ to 2 hours until completely dry. Cool. Crush or process to salt consistency. Can be made ahead and stored in an airtight container.
