Yuzu Salt

A close cousin of the fragrant meyer lemon, yuzu balances punchy citrus with floral freshness. While many flavored salts go too easy on the aromatics, this one makes a true statement—likely because it incorporates the peel, juice and pulp of the fruit and not just the rind like your standard citrus salt. Shaved into airy flakes that melt on the tongue like snowflakes, this elegant salt yields a lightness and delicate crunch that’s not presentin denser grains. It’s laced with a pale yellow powder, a clear visual of its vibrant, mild-sour taste.

The flavor is unquestionably yuzu: complex and bright, not mellowing into a vague citrusy taste like other similar products, but the even salt itself brings its own nuanced taste to the table. Sprinkle atop
deep fried dishes like French fries or our Japanese Fried Chicken to cut the richness, or incorporate into a rub for grilled meats to balance the well-browned savoriness with citrus. Shake into soups or into side dishes like our Sichuan Dry-Fried Cauliflower. And if it’s after 5 o’clock, consider using the saltto rim our Chili-Pineapple Margarita.
