Slavo Salt Gourmet Seasoning review

The Original Slavo Salt Gourmet Seasoning is a nice blend of garlic, Kosher salt and pepper. Sounds simple, right? It is. And in its simplicity lies its flavor. And the odd name comes from the nickname of the creator, Michael “Slavo” Stephens.

Slavo Salt Gourmet Seasoning


This “all purpose” seasoning is made with “all natural ingredients” and “no additives or preservatives”. And with a heavy dose of garlic and pepper, I was anxious to try this unusually named seasoning.

Salt and Vinegar Wings

In honor of Superbowl Sunday we present the
Week of Wings – 7 days and 7 recipes for delicious hot wings.

Day 1 – Salt and Vinegar Wings

Seasoned with Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning, some Seasoned Salt (Lawry’s) and simple white vinegar, these babies are crispy and delicious! While not hot wings at all, they are however very tasty and quite different than any other wing recipe we’ve tried.

We first learned of this recipe from Curt Johnson over at on his recipe page.

You’ll need:

  • 18 – 24 wing pieces (drummies and flats)
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons of Seasoned Salt (optional – see note below)
  • 4 Tablespoons of White Distilled Vinegar
  • 2 Teaspoons of White Table Salt
  • Oil for deep frying

Cooking instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350?
  2. Season wings with the Chachere’s and Seasoned Salt
  3. Spread wings in single layer on baking sheet
  4. Bake for 20 – 30 minutes until wings are just about cooked (they’ll finish cooking in the deep fryer)
  5. Move wings to a platter to let stand 10 minutes for juices to absorb
  6. In a mixing bowl, combine white vinegar and table salt
  7. Deep fry wings in small batches for 2 – 3 minutes until crispy
  8. Toss wings in vinegar solution

Note: we made this original recipe, and they were very salty. The next time, we cut back the Seasoned Salt by half.
They were still very good, and not as salty.

Serve these deliciously unique wings with beer and enjoy!
