Danish Viking Smoked Sea Salt


Product Description

Danish Viking Smoked Sea SaltSalt Traders is 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.

  • Season steaks and chops after cooking.

    This is by far the favorite smoked salt, and we love showing it off. Crush just a few grains in a mortar & pestle, sprinkle and done.

    If you love smokey, this is fantastic. To me it is the smell of bacon and I have recommended it for a vegetarian who does miss bacon.

  4. Super smokey 5 Star Review

    I remember when I first found this over 10 years ago in Saveur(?) mag.. Very good on eggs and meats. Doesn't take much since it's so strong, but it is really tasty. Used some in a marinade for steaks instead of using wood chips and turned out really good.

  5. Theres salt..then theres Danish Viking Smoked Salt 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Dec 2014

    I knew that salt improves the taste of food and that there were some "specialty salts" but never did I dream the Danish Viking Smoked Salt would add both flavor and a deep smoked smell and taste to food. I originally bought an ounce for "bragging rights" because it was touted as one of the most expensive salts but after tasting it I just bought a pond as one of my kitchen staples in out family's kitchen as well as in the kitchen of the Outdoor Wilderness School we run.

    Great Product!
