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 swear, this a taste of heaven! Sprinkle it on:

  • popcorn
  • 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 has become the appetizer accompaniment in our house. Sprinkle a little on:

  • blue cheese on a cracker, and serve with red wine (my favorite)
  • a Kobe beef hamburger
  • steak
  • 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.

Sel Gris 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 has 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!
