Does adding rock salt to a recipe add any hearts or change the effect comparing it to the same recipe but without the rock salt?

Rock Salt increases the duration of whatever effects your meal has. If you are just using food to restore hearts, Rock Salt has no effect.

Fish Skewer

  • Hyrule Bass

Restores 2 Hearts

Salt-Grilled Fish

  • Hyrule Bass
  • Rock Salt

Restores 2 hearts

On the other hand, if you have a duration-based effect, it will increase the duration.

Mighty Fish Skewer

  • Mighty Porgy

Restores 2 Hearts, Small Attack Buff 0:50

Mighty Salt-Grilled Fish

  • Mighty Porgy
  • Rock Salt

Restores 2 hearts, Small Attack Buff 1:50

Mighty Salt-Grilled Fish

  • Mighty Porgy
  • Rock Salt
  • Rock Salt

Restores 2 hearts, Small Attack Buff 2:20 (All additional Rock Salts only add +0:30 seconds, instead of +1:00 from the first)

  • In general, the "description" of the meal is irrelevant -- the effects of a meal are determined solely by the ingredients, and I've never seen any "ingredient synergy" where using 2 materials in combination results in a greater sum effect. – Raven Dreamer Mar 12 '17 at 17:37

Yes! Rock salt amplifies whatever effect you're aiming for, whether it be healing, heat resistance, or something else.

    A better answer here would give some examples. I've wondered about this myself, but never was too bothered. – Seiyria Mar 12 '17 at 15:35
