Spice Up your Dishes: Herbs Flavored Salt

TIP OF THE DAY

Salt is an essential part of cooking: no salt, no flavor. To flavor up even more our compositions, why not make flavored salt by ourselves? Mark Bitterman wrote a great book about the various applications and variations around salt: Salted: A Manifesto on the World’s Most Essential Mineral, with Recipes.

These salts can pleasantly perfume our sauces or vegetable broth. These salt mixes are great for a barbecue too. Their flavors emerge when rubbed on meat or fish to grill. To achieve these salts, it is better to use herbs and organic spices and unrefined sea salt.
