Tips for Using Flavored Sea Salts
Gourmet flavored sea salts… They sound so exotic… Intriguing… just yummy! Ahh, but how can you use them? We’ve got some suggestions:
Black Truffle Sea Salt
We say this is heaven… but it’s earthy, and rich, and just yummy. Sprinkle it on:
- French fries
- hamburgers or steak
- pasta (especially good with Parmesan cheese)
- potatoes, eggs, mushrooms
- veggies (especially snow peas)
- soups, salads and stews…
We really haven’t found anything that doesn’t improve with just a little truffle salt. Be warned, a little goes a long way. The truffle is powerful, and too much is not a good thing. Get creative and enjoy.
Smoked Applewood Sea Salt
This is the appetizer accompaniment! Sprinkle a little on:
- blue cheese on a cracker, and serve with red wine (my favorite)
- a Kobe beef hamburger
- eggs (almost as good as bacon)
- chicken, fish, lentils, pork, roast beef, potatoes, beans, tomatoes…
- rim your bloody Mary glass!
Lime Sea Salt
Very popular with the margarita crowd. This is also good with fish, chicken, guacamole, and on fresh fruit.
This cooking salt is a favorite among our restaurant customers. Our chefs use it to finish dishes in their restaurants such as fish, scallops, chicken. This salt is high in minerals and moisture has a very clean taste. It is the salt of salts.
Garlic Sea Salt
We are not too shy to say, this is the best garlic salt you will ever taste. Freshly ground for bold flavor, it’s an excellent complement to Italian food – pizza especially. And try it broccoli, popcorn, chicken, steak, potatoes, tomatoes, soups, stews, and Italian bread of course.
Rosemary Lavender Sea Salt
This gourmet salt brings together freshly ground rosemary, lavender and French sel gris (grey sea salt). It makes an excellent rub for chicken, pork, and steak. This is very popular with our vegetarian customers… think green beans, snow peas, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes…
And these are just a few of oh-so-many ways to get creative – there are no rules. Sprinkle away!
