Bold and earthy! Sea Salt Table and Black Truffle Salt rival the best that is available in the world. It is completely natural and isn't flavored artificially in any way. When using it as a seasoning rub for your dishes, you are sure to notice the rich flavor. It blends the unique flavor of Black Truffles with coarse sea salt crystals to make an uncommonly delightful flavor. Sea salt has been used by many cultures around the world for many years as a health-enhancing food additive.
To make your own at home, simply follow these simple steps is Place a bowl of cold water on the counter. Add two tablespoons of fine sea salt to the water and stir to combine. Now it is time to get creative! You can use the black truffle salt and combine it with a bit of black pepper or any other choice of seasoning.
You may want to add a little bit of olive oil into the mix as well, just to let the flavors meld a little more easily. This will help to enhance the flavor even further. Now you just need to sprinkle it onto your favorite crackers and bake them for about twenty minutes to fuse the flavors.
When you serve this with freshly tossed salads, it really enhances the flavor. Salads that are dressed with a hint of this rare, earthy flavor, such as lettuce, artichoke, or even radishes, are sure to go over big. This is truly a one of a kind seasoning that can be used in so many different recipes. I have actually served it on grilled fish, pizza, pasta, and even meatloaf!
To really bring out the unique, earthy flavor, try serving it with some Provolone sauce on it. Some people add cream cheese to their black truffle sea salt for an extra boost, but be sure to keep it to a minimum. The cream cheese tends to mask the taste of the truffle and take it over. So be aware of your own flavor preferences when adding these to your meals.
For those who want to go a step further, you could also add pieces of salmon or shrimp to the mix, along with the black truffle salt. These will enhance the flavor even further while packing the nutrients that you need from this highly nutritious salt. Salmon is packed with omega-3 fatty acids that are important to your health, and shrimp, if allowed, will give you even more protein as well. These two ingredients combined will make an excellent complement to your meal, as long as you keep in mind that it is important to keep your sodium consumption low during this preparation process.
Another way to bring out the true, smoky flavor of this dish is to toss in some sage leaves. When using sage leaves, be sure to use the tender, green ones that are in season. Sage adds an incredible level of flavor to anything you prepare with it, so be sure to include it in your recipes often. The only downfall to using sage leaves is that they tend to burn easily, so make sure to use them in small amounts if you are using them on a larger scale. When using sage leaves, do so at the end of your cooking time so that the oils can complete their natural process.
Finally, be sure to toss in a good amount of white wine as well. While not technically considered "salt", white wine adds a lot of flavor to the mixture. This is why it is typically included when working with seafood or other salty dishes where a salty taste is desired. Just remember to only toss in what you can use without having to throw out the rest of your ingredients.
