Savory Finishing Salt

Roasted garlic and parmesan give a big umami boost to this finishing salt. Sprinkle a little on steamed veggies, popcorn, scrambled eggs, seafood, pasta or roasted potatoes. Finishing salts should be added at the end of cooking time to retain their flavor.


¾ cup kosher salt
1 head roasted garlic
¼ cup parmesan cheese, shredded.


1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.

2. Combine salt and roasted garlic in a mixing bowl, mashing the garlic with a fork.

3. Spread salt on a cookie sheet and bake in oven for 20 minutes.

4. Remove salt and allow it to cool completely.

5. Pour salt into food processor and add parmesan. Pulse a few times until it’s all combined. You don’t want to overdo it here or the salt will become powdery.

6. Store in an airtight container.

Note: Oh, and please use a nice parmesan for this and shred it yourself. There are only three ingredients here so skimping isn't advised.
