Sriracha Salt

I wanted a way to get sriracha on to popcorn.  I did see a way to dehydrate the sriracha in to a powder, but this salt looked much easier. It isn't quite strong enough for my taste, but my husband thinks it is "goldilocks"  (that is just right for you non science buffs)  I made it with kosher salt and then put some in the spice grinder to make it fine enough for popcorn. It was so easy, I started playing around with other salts too.  I made a lime one with some fresh lime juice and kosher salt.  I started small with the juice, but it really needed a lot to get any lime flavor on the salt. It was very wet and I stirred it often, but the end result was really good.  Margaritas anyone? ;)  I also made some with table salt and liquid smoke.  My son loves it.  I was thinking maybe mixture of sriracha and smoke for a bloody Mary?
