Rosemary Salt - 52 Simple but Next Level Dishes

Pin It Now!

2 ingredients... HUNDREDS OF USES!!!

It really is just a case of measure and mix.  Personally, I prefer more rosemary than salt, so I go for a 2 to 1 mix.  If you are a salt-a-holic, an even mix works as well (personal taste).

Keep a jar of this close as you cook... Something simple like fried eggs and you have a treat.  Any vegetable, instead of just salt, add a little savory zip.  Bake a loaf of bread... Do an egg wash on the top and sprinkle this for added flavor and rustic beauty.  Fried potatoes become an Italian treat...

And SHHH... Don't tell anyone but you add flavor while using less salt!

OK... Here's What I did...

Rosemary Sea Salt

  • 2 Parts Dried Rosemary Spice
  • 1 Parts Extra Coarse Sea Salt
Cooking Directions
  1. Measure and Mix... same measurements, 2 tsp spice to 1 tsp salt OR 1 Cup spice to 1/2 Cup Sea Salt
  2. Store room temperature in a sealed jar.
  3. And ENJOY!
I usually make up a batch this size (1 Cup Rosemary and 2/3 cup Sea Salt) every 2-3 months.  Any longer and the flavor of the rosemary will not be as strong.

Flavored salt... Once you go Rosemary, you never want to go back!

My very favorite use is to make a quick batch of Rosemary fried potatoes (shown below).  Come back tomorrow and I will talk about them.


This simple recipe has been added to my growing list of "52 Simple but Next Level Dishes"!

Kind of an odd title for these posts. But the longer sentence is... Simple recipes that are easy and inexpensive that will take your cooking to the next level... Things like easy pickled items (I always have a jar of Pickled Red Onions for sandwiches in my fridge). Or how about the easiest bread to make in the world... Beer Bread that is tasty on it's own but also makes a wonderful open face pizza style sandwich... With easy to make Tomato Sauce. Or how about Roasting Garlic for a spread on toast points for a unique appetizer. Infusing Oil with Herbs or spices or spicy peppers. Or how about making your own BBQ sauce. Nothing sets you apart as a grill master like setting out a jar of your own specialty BBQ Sauce.

You get the idea. These recipes are very simple, take very little time but will set you apart as a better cook...
