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.

Opening a jar of Danish Viking Smoked Salt is like opening a jar of campfire smoke. It will take you to the great outdoors and remind you of how wonderful food is cooked on a campfire. As a finishing salt, a sprinkle on pan grilled trout will bring back memories of your fly fishing trip. Nice crunch on sandwiches to turn a regular turkey sandwich into a smoked turkey dream. Love this stuff.

There are a lot of smoked salts out there, and they are all pretty good. This one, though, is in a class by itself. It's expensive, but so intense,all you need are a few grains to add serious umami! I love to sprinkle it on risotto.
