Salt Traders is proud to be the exclusive United States importer of Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt. Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt is made in a style devised by the Vikings, thanks to the efforts of one man in Denmark, who took it upon himself to rekindle this millennium-old tradition. Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt is produced by first evaporating seawater, then using a "fizzing" (evaporating) process, which takes place in a vessel over an open, smoky fire containing juniper, cherry, elm, beech and oak. "The resulting salt," according to the April 2002 issue of SAVEUR Magazine, "tastes like a bonfire."
Suggested Uses for Danish Viking Smoked Sea Sa:
- Tossed Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt with steamed vegetables, a bit of lemon juice and butter.
- Use Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt in creamed corn or corn chowder.
- Sprinkle Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt on savory tarts and quiches.
- Sprinkle Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt on any of your favorite egg preparations.
- Sprinkle Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt on baked or mashed potatoes.
- Use Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt in a Bloody Mary for a smoky twist on this classic cocktail.
- Use Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt as a dry rub - by itself on meats or as one of a combination of ingredients in a dry rub. For example, grind in a spice grinder equal parts smoked sea salt, sea salt and cumin seed, then dust the countertop with the resulting mixture. Dredge pieces of fresh ahi in the mixture before searing it.

I bought a couple of 3 oz jars of this a few years ago and still have some left but will need to restock soon. Mine still have the old label, not sure when that got changed. I use it in different ways but my favorite is to just dip my finger to scoop up a few grains to lick straight. Salt heaven.
My favorite salt

You have no idea what a few grains of the Viking Smoked Salt will do for scrambled eggs, cooked vegetables and meat. This is my all time favorite finishing salt.

Danish Viking Smoked Salt is a true and flavorful smoked salt. Very fresh and intense, this salt wakes up deep hidden feelings as it brings back memories of being outside with a roaring campfire. My customers tell me they have never smelled or tasted such a fresh, intense smoked flavor. A MARVELOUS SALT!!!!

Nothink like it. VERY smoky. Compared with this, Maldon Smoked is barely tastable. A few grains is enough, which makes it worth the rather high price.
I got a pound, which lasted several years. When I re-ordered, the new bottle was much livelier. Get it in the 1.5 oz. jar, or at most the 3.5 jar.
