I have plans to try a new recipe out on my family this week but the recipe called for smoked sea salt and of course, it only called for a sprinkle of it. I looked for it online because I hadn't consciously seen it in my local supermarket and wanted to see how rare it was. Turns out it is relatively easy to find but it's expensive! You can get 6oz of it for only $13. (Artisan Salt Company- Durango Hickory Smoked Salt) I realize that $13 wont break anyone's bank but since I only needed a sprinkle, I wanted to see how to make the stuff myself.

Smoked Sea Salt- The Easy Way!
1/2 cup of course sea salt
1 tablespoon of liquid smoke
|Liquid Smoke comes in different|
flavors. I used Mesquite.
Note: Make sure you have a course salt otherwise, it will just dissolve in the liquid smoke. Liquid smoke comes in several different flavors. My recipe called for Mesquite so that's what I used.
When you use it, if you want a finer grain salt, put it into a salt grinder. I used my Magic Bullet to pulse it into a finer salt and it worked great!
