Sal de Gusano (Mezcal worm salt)


Sal de Gusano / Agave Worm Salt is an essential ingredient in Oaxaca’s gastronomy used for cooking and pairing with fruits and snacks. In addition, it is the ideal companion for mezcal, tequila, and other beverages.

The secret of the Merci Mercado Sal de Gusano / Agave Worm Salt comes from a careful selection of local peppers and the high concentration of maguey red worm (chinicuiles). This results in a very delicious and versatile salt. It serves as a great seasoning for your dishes. It can also be served with mezcal and other drinks to create exquisite cocktails!
