So, what is salmiak?

Salmiak, also known as ammonium chloride, is a unique and pungent food ingredient commonly found in Northern European cuisine. Its distinct flavor is both salty and slightly bitter, making it a popular addition to salty licorice candies and other confections. Salmiak is produced from the reaction between ammonia and hydrochloric acid and is often used as a seasoning for meat and fish dishes. Due to its medicinal properties, it is also used in cough drops and throat lozenges. Despite its strong taste, salmiak has gained a cult following among adventurous eaters and is considered a delicacy in some parts of the world.
