New to Smoked Salt?
Given the vast array of choices available, the world of smoked salt can certainly be a daunting one to wrap your head around. Indeed, the intricacies of it all can sometimes look confusing.
So then, what’s important to remember is the fact that ALL of our products are cold smoked with untreated wood, meaning you don’t EVER have to worry about artificial flavors being used.
Another key thing to keep in mind is the fact that smoked salt is really going to excite you. When you first open your product, the smell is going to be intense, and, without a doubt, you’ll be eager to try it on pretty much everything.
Sure, go ahead, but remember that this is still salt. As delicious and exciting as some of the tones are, you still risk ruining your dish, so be careful when introducing it into your life.
Just a little smoked salt goes a long way.
How should I use smoked salt?
There are so many different ways to use smoked salt that, after just a little experience with it, you’ll be drafting up your own genius uses in no time.
Still, everyone needs a little help now and then, so here’s a look at some of the uses.
Dry Rub For Meats
If you’re looking into smoked salt, we’re going to guess you’re a pretty good cook. With that in mind, you’ll be no stranger to dry rubbing meats before cooking, looking to get every ounce of flavor out of it before doing what you do best.
Well then, smoked salts are likely to be your best friend. Whether you’ve got a tuna steak or a dry-aged slab of beef, rubbing them in all kinds of smoked salt will deepen the flavor and give a crust so delicious, your guests will think you’ve snuck a professional into the kitchen!
By locking in the flavor and helping draw out moisture, your dishes will sear far better in the pan and really give you an amazing-looking end product.
As a substitute for bacon crumble
There are so many good things about being a vegetarian, but, frankly, missing out on bacon crumble is a pain. An absolutely fantastic topping to pretty much anything, the herbivores amongst you can finally see what everyone is talking about!
By sprinkling smoked salt over things like deviled eggs and salads, your dishes will take on all manner of different tones. Heck, even whisk a pinch into a dressing and pour over whatever greens you like to really see just how versatile smoked salt can be.
As the savory to your sweet
A smoked, salted caramel cheesecake is the dessert of dreams. With the flakes being slightly more coarse than your run-of-the-mill table salt, they pop up throughout sweet dishes as flavorful rocks, really dancing across your tongue.
Even whisked into ice cream will have you thinking you’re sat somewhere on the Amalfi coast, offering a sharp reminder of the salt of the earth nature of cooking while the creamy sweetness of the ice cream wraps around the rocks, giving you the dessert you no doubt deserve.
For a better snack
It doesn’t all have to be decadent.
Indeed, the beauty of smoked salt is that a little goes a long way so, if you’re looking for a quick and healthy lunch, adorning a nice slice of tomato with some of its flavors is a brilliant way of turning an otherwise (let’s face it) pretty boring snack into something more interesting.
Thrown over nuts or even apple slices too, smoked salt can help you eat healthy without ever really getting bored about it. What’s better than that?
