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."

Wow, this salt does not mess around. What wonderful, rich flavor - I never thought a few granules of salt could make such an impact on a dish.
I've tried other smoked salts - this one tops them all!

We have used this salt in both everyday foods and in our Viking Re-enactment camps where we feed many. It has become known as the one item we cannot leave home without. It's been used on veggies, in soups and stews, on a variety of meats and poultry, game meats, cheese, ground and as is. I simply cannot say enough about it. It blends with other spices and stands alone. Used in the Convection oven you would swear you had come from the open campfire...... with a blend of root veggies and meats it's heaven (or Vahalla!)
Our favorite way to eat is with our vikings, helms and all........

I like the flavor of smoked meat in braised greens, however I've been wanting to make my braised greens in a newer more modern way. Danish smoked salt to the rescue! Added near the end of cooking, it gives a lovely smokey flavor and depth. Added to corn chowder...belissema!

This salt is quite amazing. It evokes the sense of standing directly above a smokey fire along a densely forested Nordic coast. It definitely transports you to other times and places. The flavor is deep and clean and lovely and not at all acrid or bitter - it adds that lovely intense smokiness to just about anything it is sprinkled on. We've had many different salts and nothing approaches this. There really is nothing quite like it - you must definitely try it.

I purchased the Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt for my husband and son. They hoard it, jealously holding each other accountable for its use. Intense smokey flavor, reminiscent of what we all imagine must be hearty, seaside meals gathered around a huge Viking bonfire, horned helmets glowing in the fire light. Amazing how emotive a mere salt can be--Now, to try my Hawaiian pulled pork recipe with this instead of the yummy Hawaiian red sea salt. Maybe I can do without the liquid smoke!
