Porcini Salt

Serves 60 (serving size: 1/4 teaspoon)

Concentrated with flavor, porcini mushrooms already add a new layer to any dish. When grinded down to a fine powder with sea salt flakes, this finishing salt will bring a rich, earthy element to grilled steak and dry rubs. Even add a new layer to grilled vegetables with a sprinkle of this porcini salt.


  • 1 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons Maldon sea salt flakes
