Sichuan Dipping Salt
André Baranowski

We like to serve this seasoning in small bowls with crudites or roast chicken.

Yield: makes About 1 Cup


  • 1 cup kosher salt
  • <sup>1</sup>⁄<sub>3</sub> cup dried Sichuan peppercorns
  • 1 tbsp. five-spice powder


  • Combine ingredients in a 12" skillet, cover, and cook, stirring, over low heat until fragrant, about 30 minutes. Working in batches, grind mixture in a spice grinder. Sift through a large mesh sieve; discard peppercorn husks. Let cool. Store as you would salt.
