Hawaiian Coarse Table Salt has a deep pink color which comes from Alaea clay that is added during the harvesting process. This salt is composed of over 80 minerals and historically has been used for ceremonial purposes such as blessing and purifying sea-going boats. It is a non-processed product and is also used to preserve food. This spectacular salt is sometimes referred to as Hawaiian Sea Salt, Hawaiian Red Salt or Alaea Salt.
Hawaiian Coarse Table Salt adds depth to dishes because of its earthiness. This is particularly tasty when used as a rub on prime rib roasts. Use it as a garnish on dips and potatoes. Mix it in with herbs and use as a roasting salt and it seals in the natural moisture of the meat. So this Gourmet salt is great on red meats, fish and sprinkled on salads. We have found that the clay mellows the sharpness of the salt and adds great presentation with its wonderful color. You will find there is no aftertaste and it gives a gentle tingle.
