Things I Love: A Sprightly Salt
July 5, 2017
I’m not one of those people who has an entire wardrobe of flavored salts. Lots of different salts, yes, in various shapes and colors. But salt flavored with smoke or seaweed or chile has never done much for me.
Then I discovered Shed’s Shiso Salt.
It has a bright flavor unlike anything I’ve encountered before; somehow it mellows the bite of shiso, giving it a lovely hint of sweetness. Rumors of sunny fields float through this salt, along with a tantalizing herbal lilt. Lately I find myself sprinkling it on just about everything: eggs, bread, tomatoes, salad. Made a lamb curry the other night, and found myself shaking some into that as well. It was the perfect touch.1 Comment
