This flavoured salt is an incredibly versatile condiment. Turn cantaloupe or honeydew melon wedges from a kids’ snack into a thrilling grown-up nibble: arrange cut melon cubes on a platter and sprinkle with the spicy salt.
Mix the flavoured salt with rice flour, then coat calamari or chicken before frying it.
This recipe is from chef Sam Massari and features in my first cookbook, In the Mix: Great Thermomix Recipes.
