Let me introduce you to a match made in food heaven: kosher salt and red pepper flakes.
My friends Kari and Jesse introduced us to this delightful condiment combo at a make-your-own-pizza party last spring, and I’ve had a dish of the two on my counter ever since. It is a ridiculously simple way to add a little zip to pretty much any savory recipe.
We take a pinch from the middle of the dish and sprinkle the salt and pepper flakes on everything from teriyaki take-out to oven-roasted asparagus. Try it! You’ll see that a little salt and spice makes everything nice.
