Celery Salt Is The Unique Ingredient Geoffrey Zakarian Loves To Use In Steak Rub

0 10

Celery is a singular flavor. It is at once bright, grassy, sweet, sharp, and bitter. Celery seeds convey much the same flavor, but far more concentrated. Celery salt obviously cuts the intensity of unmitigated celery seeds while also dialing it in by adding the flavor-enhancing qualities of salt. It should be noted, though, that when using celery salt, one needs to be mindful of the amount of salt going into a recipe and adjust accordingly.

Steak frites is but one way to make use of the celery salt that is likely hanging around your spice cabinet in the kitchen. Famously, it makes for an excellent addition to bloody mary mixes as well as for rimming the glass for said beverage. Zakarian goes on to say home mixologists should master its use in Manhattans, martinis, whiskey sours, and Aperol spritzes. Celery salt is also a critical part of the topping lineup for an authentic Chicago-style hot dog recipe. But the tastiness doesn’t end there. Zakarian puts it on roast chicken which can easily be shredded to make chicken salad. As chicken salad commonly has sliced raw celery as one of its crunchy components, a touch of celery salt in the seasoning blend only serves to emphasize the flavor.
