A Salt Traders Exclusive!
We are the exclusive United States importer of Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt. The 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, you can experience this amazing salt here in the US. The salt is smoked using several different woods and "The resulting salt," according to the April 2002 issue of SAVEUR Magazine, "tastes like a bonfire." No other smoked sea salt has the depth of character and flavor as the Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt.
*Please note, this is a moist sea salt with a light stickiness. Because of its artisanal nature, batches will vary in moisture content and texture.
Suggested Uses for Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt:
- Season steaks and chops after cooking.
- Great on fish, especially salmon.
- Season bean or lentil soup.
- Toss with steamed vegetables and unsalted butter.
- Use in creamed corn or corn chowder.
- Sprinkle on savory tarts and quiches.
- Season any of your favorite egg preparations.
- Sprinkle on baked or mashed potatoes.
- Use a few grains in a Bloody Mary for a smoky twist on this classic cocktail.
- Add a few grains to a bowl of ice cream with chocolate or caramel sauce.

Amazing Flavor= great for vegetarian cooking
Posted by Leigh on 24th Aug 2020
We have been using this salt for years. We're vegetarian and find the smoked salt adds a "meaty" flavor to anything. We love it with greens- instead of the ham hock. The flavor is strong and beautiful. We've tried other smoked salt, and always go back to this one. It's our mainstay.
The Vikings knew!

I have loved this since I first tried it. It is expensive but packs so much wallop that you only need a pinch in a cauldron of soup or stew to flavor it. Great flavor. I am giving a lot of it away as Christmas presents this year. No one will be disappointed Of that I am sure.
Beats the heck out of Hawaiian Black Lava Salt
Posted by Julie on 10th Jul 2020
Danish Viking Salt is #1 in my spice cabinet. Never thought I would find better than Hawaiian BLK Lava Salt. I've used it 4 at least 6 years, but ordered 1.5 oz of Danish Viking Salt 2 try & I'm hooked. The aroma & taste on my Salmon, Lamb, Elk, Goat, Venison, Boar, & Bison HAS CHANGED 4 THE BETTER. I will be back 4 more of this exquisite SPICE - MINERAL. Thank You Salt Traders

This is one of my favorite finishing salts! It imparts a deep, smoky flavor to food that I have not been able to find in any other smoked salt. Especially great for many vegetable and meat based soups!
