When we think of Serrano chilies most of us picture the bright green and orange peppers available fresh at your local gourmet market. The Serrano we use is different; it is left on the vine to mature until it turns scarlet red. It is then picked and slowly smoked until the flavors blossom. Smoked Serrano chilies have a spicy, lingering flavor with subtle notes of berry. Mixed with sea salt it can be used to make authentic spicy sauces. Smoked Serrano Salt pairs well with sweet fruits such as mango or pineapple for a non-traditional salsa.
