It can also save you money by adding tons of flavor without needing expensive seasonings or ingredients. We love it on meats, in stews, as a finishing salt for our salads, and on baked potatoes. You can even use it in place of regular table salt when making your favorite recipes. We recommend using smoked sea salt instead of other types of salts because it has so many uses while still being relatively inexpensive compared to some other spices out there.

Cooking with smoked sea salt
Smoked sea salt has been used for centuries as a flavorful addition to everything from fresh fruits and vegetables, to fish, poultry, meat, and even baked goods. There are three different types of smoked sea salts available: applewood smoked salt, alderwood smoked salt and cherrywood smoked salt. Each type will give you a unique flavor profile depending on how it was made. Using it in cooking also gives you a deep smoky flavor that doesn’t overpower your dish. If you are looking for an easy way to add bold flavors without adding too much fat or calories, try smoking your food with smoked sea salt.
List of foods to use when you want your food to taste like it was made on a grill.
Smoked sea salt adds a smoky flavor without having to actually cook anything on a grill. Try adding it to grilled chicken, buttermilk marinade for fish, or some smoked butter for steaks and burgers. Or if you’re looking for an easy dessert that tastes as it came from a diner, try using smoked sea salt in chocolate chip cookies (instead of regular salt) or on top of vanilla ice cream drizzled with caramel sauce. Before long, you’ll find that everything tastes better when sprinkled with some smoked sea salt. You can even use it as a finishing salt at dinner parties by putting out bowls of plain popcorn and sprinkling them with your favorite flavor. You can also make your own chips by tossing potatoes in oil and then sprinkling them with one of your favorite flavors after they come out of the oven. The options are endless.
If you don’t eat regular salt, smoked sea salt is the one you’ll want to go with. It’s much more flavorful than regular salt and it can work with any diet. This includes the diets for diabetics and pregnant women. If you want to elevate your cooking, or need perfect seasoning, try smoking salt. You won’t regret it.
