Easy

Use to season my Chinese coleslaw, deep-fried duck, crab dumplings and more.

Ingredients

1 tbsp Sichuan peppercorns

3 tbsp sea salt

Method

Dry-roast peppercorns and salt in a heavy-based pan. When peppercorns begin to "pop" and become aromatic, take off the heat.

Allow to cool, then grind to a powder in mortar and pestle or spice grinder.

Store in an airtight container.
