Whether you are cooking a quick meal for your family, looking to spruce up a snack, or going all-out with a gourmet feast, smoked sea salts are the perfect finishing touch!

BENEFITS OF SMOKED SEA SALT - Unlike ordinary table salt, which is often processed and refined in a way that removes most minerals, our sea salt is harvested and sold in its natural state. Natural sea salt is not as refined as other types of salt and contains a variety of trace minerals that are essential for our health.

Ways to Use Smoked Salts

  • BBQ/Grilling: Unsurprisingly, smoked sea salt goes great on anything barbequed – ribs, chicken, hamburgers, skewers, grilled veggies, and fish all benefit from a sprinkle of smoked salt.
  • In Lieu of Grilling: These smoked salts add authentic char broiled flavor to food when you are unable to or simply not interested in grilling.
  • Brines: Soak chicken, turkey, and fish in smoked salt brines to tenderize meat while adding multidimensional rich, smoky flavor!
  • Oven-Broiled Meats: Sprinkle meat with a touch of one of our smoked sea salts before broiling so that the smoky flavor can truly permeate the meat. Your steak will be so flavorful that no sauce will be needed!
  • Smoked Salmon: Add Alder Salt to salmon before baking to give it an authentic smoked taste!
  • Alcohol Enhancer: Smoked Salt adds a deeper layer of flavor when used in Bloody Mary recipes. These salts also shine when used around the rim of your favorite ale or cocktail.
  • Vegan Collard Greens: Use Applewood Smoked Sea Salt to replicate the smoky bacon flavor of collard greens, without any meat!
  • Bring Authentic Smoky Flavor to Vegan/Vegetarian Dishes: Try our smoked salts in vegan or vegetarian versions of meat based recipes to replicate that fresh off the grill flavor- after eating smoky tofu, smoked tempeh, smoky seitan, and smoky jackfruit, you will never go back!
  • Stir-fried Vegetables:  Stir-fry your favorite veggies in olive or canola oil and finish with a dash of smoked salt.
  • Corn on the Cob: Spice up your corn on the cob with a touch of butter and a light dusting of fine-grain smoked sea salt. 
  • Kale Chips: Lightly brush olive oil on to homemade kale chips and dust with a sprinkle of smoked sea salt for a smoky finish.
  • Popcorn: Use smoked sea salt instead of ordinary table salt to elevate your popcorn to another level. 
  • Smoked Salt Caramels: Replace standard table salt in your favorite caramel recipe with smoked sea salt for an unexpected flavor fusion.
