Citrus Salt Recipe
This seasoned salt is a simple, quick way to give anything you’re cooking a burst of salty, zesty flavor. To make it, simply combine the zest from a couple of lemons, limes, and oranges with kosher salt and let it dry out overnight. Try it sprinkled on baked, sautéd, or broiled seafood, a simple seared chicken breast, or a margarita.
