A favorite of gourmet chefs, these Himalayan salt cooking tiles can also be used to provide a distinctive presentation plate, platter, or cutting board at your next event. With the ability to heat these tiles up to several hundred degrees, they can also be used to sear thinly sliced meats, fish, or eggs. When refrigerated ahead of time, you can use these tiles for serving a variety of fruits, sushi, desserts, or vegetables. No matter how you decide to use them, these salt tiles will provide a light seasoning to your foods for enhanced flavoring. Cleanup is always a breeze. Simply wipe with a damp cloth.
Their lack of porosity means that the surface area touching your food is minimal. Compared to, say, ground up salt or naturally evaporated salt crystals, these tiles of salt will impart only a very moderate saltiness. The high quantity of trace minerals (1.2% sulfur, .4% calcium, .35% potassium, .16% magnesium, and 80 other trace minerals) impart a more mild and full taste to the salt, providing another level of flavor complexity to your food.
IDEAS FOR COOKING:
Place a tile of Himalayan salt under the broiler. Wait 30 minutes, then remove the tile with a kitchen glove. Set on trivet at table, and saute fish, meats, and veggies while your guests or family look on with awe, disbelief, and dawning admiration. While cooking, your food will take on a light saltiness.
For an out-doorsy variation on the above, place a tile of Himalayan salt on the backyard grill, and plank grill your favorite fish, steak, portobello mushrooms, etc.
Use it as a serving platter for butter, cheeses, dried meats, fruits or veggies. When used as a plate for moist food such as apple slices and mozzarella, the food acquires an enhanced salt and mineral flavoring.
Place our larger platters of the Himalayan salt on the rack of your oven, preheat, and then bake bread, pizza, and savory pastries.
CARING FOR YOUR SALT TILE
After each use, wash your Himalayan salt tile with warm water and a soft brush or green scrubby, and tamp dry with a paper towel before setting on a drying rack. This will remove a very thin layer of the salt and make it ready for use again. Treated with care, a large salt tile will provide years of service! In addition, the powerful antimicrobial properties of the salt insure that it is always proper and ready for future use, with no need for detergents.
