What Does It Taste Like?

Here you will find the sweet and woody aroma of Mexican vanilla and the fruity and spicy aroma of chilli. Everything is complemented with fine sea salt.

How Is It Used?

Mexican vanilla salt and chili pepper go well with fish, smoked salmon, and chicken. It especially refines the flavor of crustaceans and mussels such as scallops. But it gives other birds and vegetables an individual scent. 

It can also be used for rice, asparagus, avocado, pumpkin or for soups, to round sauces or as a special and exotic dressing for a raw vegetable salad. Seasoning salt is especially suitable for carrots.

Vanilla salt is just what it sounds, it is sea salt infused using vanilla beans. And mixing it with chili piquin will just give your recipes that extra spicy kick.


Chili pequin has a natural energizing effect on the entire body, and is used to overcome fatigue, restore core body temperature, and is proven to enhance cardiovascular performance.

Vanillin is a phenolic plant compound found in vanilla, which is full of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Studies also show that Vanillin may benefit brain health and protect against neurodegenerative diseases and is proven to lower cholesterol levels. Vanilla in addition is known as a common remedy to reduce fever naturally.
