Flavored New Zealand Sea Salt Recipes

Looking for fun holiday ideas?

Let’s play with salt!

There are so many things you can do with this seasoning. From arts and crafts to beauty scrubs and plain and simple cooking.

In this blog, we will feature flavored salt recipes perfect for a gift or for cooking.

Spicy middle eastern New Zealand Sea Salt

Every year I make a turkey for friends and family. I used middle eastern spices and add them to my salt. I always prepare the rub in advance and store in my pantry.


  • 4 tsp coriander powder
  • 1 tbsp cumin powder
  • 2 cups New Zealand Biogrow Flaky Sea Salt
  • 3 tbsp ground sumac
  • 1 tbsp dried garlic
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp dried chili flakes (if you want a little spice)


Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container in a cool place. Or put in a nice decorative Mason jar and offer as a gift.

Lemon Zest New Zealand Sea Salt

Lemon zest salt is an ideal as a topping to your favorite snacks or in your favorite dishes. I use it on poultry, fish or vegetables before grilling. I add a little sprinkle for that yummy lemony flavor.

Grate three lemons to get the zest and place into a shallow oven dish. Add the salt. Squeeze juice of one lemon into the salt. Mix all ingredients together making sure you break up the salt as much as possible. Place the lemon salt into a preheated oven (200º F) until the salt dries out. Approx. 20 mins. Cool and use a fork to break up salt. Store in an airtight container.

These recipes are easy to make in a few minutes and they can make excellent gifts or stocking stuffers.
