Sliders With Cheddar and Applewood Smoked Sea Salt  

Dress up frozen sliders with slices of sharp cheddar and Salt Cellar Applewood Smoked sea salt. The flavor of applewood gives even frozen burgers the taste of cooking over a wood fire, without the hassle and the long wait.

Honey Baked Chicken Wings With Sriracha Infused Sea Salt

Our Sriracha infused salt is made with the flavor of the same spicy, sun-ripened chilies used in the world-famous sauce. It adds a bit of crunch and a lot of flavor to any dish. For these tasty wings, the slat bumps up the flavor of the honey without overpowering it with a lot of Sriracha sauce.

Ingredients:
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 tablespoon Salt Cellar Sriracha Infused Sea Salt
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Juice of 1 lime
  Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  1. To make the glaze, melt butter in a small saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in honey, Sriracha, soy sauce and lime juice. Bring to a boil; simmer until slightly thickened, about 1-2 minutes.
  1. Place wings onto the prepared baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes, using metal tongs to turn at halftime. Brush wings with Sriracha glaze and broil for 3-4 minutes, or until crisp and crusted.
  1. Serve immediately, garnished with cilantro and sesame seeds, if desired.
Truffle Fries
