Laguna Salt's Summer Smoke Sea Salt


The end of summer is near, but our Summer Smoke Sea Salt can bring summer to your plate all year long. This delectable flavor is a party for your palate—whether applying as a rub to steak, chicken or burgers before grilling or adding to veggies for a burst of flavor, you simply can’t go wrong.

One of my favorite ways to use Summer Smoke is on avocado toast. We all know that there are loads of ways to make this of-the-moment treat, so here’s another one to add to your avocado toast arsenal:
After toasting the bread of your choice, spread on a thin layer of Boursin Cheese, add a few marinated red and yellow peppers, some sliced avocado and finish off with a light sprinkling of Summer Smoke Sea Salt. Voila! You have a delicious, healthy, smoky anytime-of-day snack.

Here’s another idea for a unique, albeit a bit unorthodox, flavor experience:
Try adding Summer Smoke Sea Salt to grilled fruit or even on top of ice cream!

There’s a reason why this is one of our most popular sea salts—who doesn’t love a flavor that is reminiscent of summer bonfires? Not to mention the fact that Summer Smoke Sea Salt is 100% natural—there is nothing artificial about our blend.

Fall might be coming, but with Summer Smoke Sea Salt, the taste of summer is just a sprinkle away.

Until next time,
Robin

Ghost Pepper Is A Ghost No More

Ghost Pepper is now a staple in our house (at least for my fiance.) This love affair began on Mother’s Day. As I mentioned in my previous blog, I had planned to incorporate many different Laguna Salts into our brunch. Everything came out quite delicious. These salts are so full of flavor, that all it takes is a pinch to transform your dish. And as for dessert, did I add any salt to that? I sure did! We had vanilla ice cream, with hot fudge and a dash of Kona Bean Sea Salt. It was like a slice (or scoop) of coffee/vanilla/chocolate heaven!

Now, back to the Ghost Pepper Sea Salt. I knew this was a spicy salt. I just didn’t know HOW spicy it was. I brought the jar to the table and gave everyone the option of adding it to their food. We all cautiously tasted it and wow, was it hot! A bit too hot for some of us spice wimps. But it wasn’t too hot for Howie. My fiance’s middle name should be Spicy. He uses Sriracha Sauce like it’s Ketchup. So I knew that he would like the Ghost Pepper. I just didn’t realize how much he would like it. He started by adding some to his cream cheese and it definitely kicked his bagel up a notch. Before we knew it, he was adding it to pretty much everything on his plate. He loved it!

Since Mother’s Day, I’ve added Ghost Pepper Sea Salt to almost every meal I’ve made for Howie. This combination of sea salt and the incredibly hot Naga Jolokia pepper creates a fiery experience that is not for the weak! We’ve used it on pasta, eggs, even pizza! Of course, you can vary the heat by increasing or decreasing the amount of salt you use. But remember, a little bit goes a long way. So, if you are a fan of fiery flavors, you need Ghost Pepper Sea Salt in your life. Try it. I dare you!

Until next time,
Robin
