Salt 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.
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.

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.

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.

This salt makes revitalizes my salmon and green salads. I use a mortar and pestle to grind it to a finer grain so I can sprinkle it easily, withou wasting it.
Still the best

So I recently got a new batch and the smoke flavor seems a little different but that could be due to the aging effect on my previous batch. Still highly recommended, this stuff is addictive so you've been warned.
Excellent taste, excellent salt.

Works miracles on any food, gives it a slight and nice smoky smell and taste. This is my 3rd purchase of this salt, never regretted it.
