This week’s Spotlight Spice is inspired by today’s food holiday: National Guacamole Day (but we think every day is a good day for guacamole)! It’s our Peruvian Chile-Citrus Sea Salt.
We’re suckers for a uniquely flavored salt, and this one doesn’t disappoint! It combines a bit of zesty heat from Aji Amarillo chiles with citrusy lime flavor and natural sea salt to create a flavored salt blend that exemplifies Peruvian cuisine.
Its flavors make it the perfect addition to guacamole, as well as an excellent choice for finishing grilled fish, fresh salsa, and salads.
This salt is also perfect for rimming a cocktail glass. We use it for margaritas and other vodka or tequila-based adult beverages, and are particularly fond of it with a pisco sour – the national cocktail of Peru. If you’ve not had one, you’re seriously missing out!
Grab some fresh fish for the grill, a bottle of Pisco, and a jar of Peruvian Chile-Citrus Salt and prepare for the weekend! Find all of our Peruvian-inspired recipes perfect for this sea salt in the AllSpice recipe library online.
