Hawaiian Salt mix is a staple in any local kitchen…
Seasoned Hawaiian salt is perfect as a meat rub for fish, chicken or steak. I also use it when boiling water for pasta.
5 cups of Hawaiian Salt
1/4 cup ground ginger
1/4 cup onion powder
1/4 cup minced garlic
2 tbsp ground peppercorn
Mix ingredients well and store covered in a cool dry place.
You can play with your own mix. Chili pepper, paprika, garlic or even turbinado sugar can be part of your own personal mix.
Seasoned salt mix in a pretty mason jar also makes a wonderful gift or favor.
See this article from the Star Bulletin’s archive for several seasoned salt recipes.
Former Maui resident Janine Opupele has also started an online store selling Hawaiian salt mixes, coconut sryups, coffee and other goodies from Hawaii.
