Give Average Salt a Smoky Touch

Servings:Over 8
Difficulty: Easy
Cook Time: min

Tastes better than it sounds—way better. Just a little charcoal infuses everything with a hint of smoke, and the garlic adds a sweet, nutty finish.


  • 1 cup sea or kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • A lump of good-quality hardwood lump charcoal, briefly rinsed and dried
  • Cooking Directions

    Combine the sea salt and garlic salt in a small bowl. Using a fine Microplane, grate about 1 tablespoon of the charcoal over the salt mixture. Using your fingertips, rub the charcoal into the salt until well combined.

    Transfer to a spice grinder or clean coffee grinder and pulse to the consistency of sand. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
