This product is a celebration of spice and the continually evolving race to find the world's hottest pepper. San Juan Island Sea Salt mixed their signature sea salt with just the right amount of Scorpion Chili to give you the perfect heat. Not overwhelming and definitely not boring. Use it on pasta, fresh cucumbers, margarita rims, and more.
For a while, the Scorpion Chili from Trinidad and Tobago was ranked as the world's hottest pepper. Its Scoville ranking may have been eclipsed, but the wonderful thing about that special pepper is that it's not just hot, its also fruity and a little sweet, giving it a wonderful depth of flavor.
From May to September, Brady and his team gather seawater from the shores of San Juan Island in the Pacific Northwest. At their farm, this water is filtered and brought to their evaporation houses. Under the summer sun, the water evaporates and leaves behind their signature salt, into which the briny flavor of the sea is locked.
