Roasted Sichuan Pepper and Salt

Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup Sichuan peppercorns (sometimes labeled Dried Prickly Ash)
  • 1/2 cup Kosher salt
Instructions
 
1. In a dry skillet, toast the peppercorns over medium heat until fragrant and slightly darkened - about 2 minutes. Cool and grind to a coarse powder.
 
2. Now roast the salt about 3 minutes and cool.
 
3. To serve, put the salt and the pepper into two separate bowls. You put a little of each on your plate and dip the chicken into them.
