- "The secret to our mouthwatering nerfsteak is the seasoning: a unique blend of Serrian salt, tertium, punctil and black hole pepper that's been handed down in my family for generations."
- ―From the menu at Dex's Diner
Serrian salt was a kind of salt used by Dexter Jettster at Dex's Diner, the Besalisk chef's restaurant on the planet Coruscant. At some point before the diner's destruction in 19 BBY, Jettster used Serrian salt in his nerfsteak seasoning and in the Gartro egg salad used for his Gartro egg salad sandwiches. By the time of the Galactic Civil War, taking something "with a ton of Serrian salt" was an idiom in Galactic Basic Standard used to note the possibility of inaccuracies in a piece of information.

- ―Milo Thirk using an idiom involving Serrian salt in a report about Lando Calrissian's account of his takeover of Cloud City
The Besalisk chef, Dexter Jettster, used Serrian salt at Dex's Diner, his restaurant on the galactic capital planet of Coruscant, at some point before the eatery was destroyed in 19 BBY. Jettster used Serrian salt as an ingredient in his seasoning for nerfsteaks, a recipe which had been in his family for generations. He also included the salt in the Gartro egg salad used in his Gartro egg salad sandwiches. By the time of the Galactic Civil War fought between the Alliance to Restore the Republic and the Galactic Empire, taking something "with a ton of Serrian salt" was an idiom in Galactic Basic Standard that meant to be wary of the truthfulness of a piece of information. At some point after Lando Calrissian became Baron Administrator of Cloud City, Milo Thirk of Alliance Intelligence sent a report about the event to Eddriss Sark that included the phrase to denote the dubious accuracy of Calrissian's account of his takeover of the mining colony located over the planet Bespin.
Behind the scenesEdit
Serrian salt was first mentioned in Lando Calrissian's profile in The Star Wars Sourcebook, a 1987 book that was written by Bill Slavicsek and Curtis Smith for West End Games' Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game. In 1994, the profile was later repeated in the second edition of the sourcebook, which was also written by Slavicsek and Smith. In 2009, the salt received a mention in Dining at Dex's, a Star Wars Hyperspace article written as an in-universe menu by Gregory Walker.
