"Crystallized salt from the ancient sea commonly used to season meals. Cannot be eaten in this form."
— In-game description

Rock Salt is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It can be found by Link by breaking Ore Deposits with Remote Bombs, Bomb Arrows, or Hammers. Link can also purchase it from certain traveling merchants or from the Goron Gusto Shop in Goron City.

It is possible to use it to season meals by adding it to a cooking pot with some ingredients to create interesting dishes such as Salt-Grilled Meat, Fish or Greens.


According to the in-game description, Rock Salt may be a reference to the Great Sea from The Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass. However it may rather be the reference to the "Ancient Sea" mentioned in Skyward Sword that became the Ancient Sand Sea.
