Today’s TSP Item of the day is Maladon Sea Salt. I when I first discovered this stuff I simply said, “where the hell has this stuff been all my life”!
So, what does it taste like, it tastes like salt, nothing more.
It is pure sea salt which many of us consider more healthy that typical table salt but that is not the magic either. No it is all about the texture! I am not sure how they do it but these salt flakes are in like little flaky pyramid like shapes.
I like them so much I am adding a second salt box to our counter top! Why, this stuff is expensive compared to say typical sea salt or kosher salt which I use for most cooking. Again the magic is the texture not the taste.
So I use this as a finishing salt which so happens to be the way most chefs use it. On the top of a steak is pretty great and it is really good on something like sauteed vegetables or on a salad. In addition to great salty flavor it adds an amazing crunch in such a cool way.
My links go to a twin pack, as I see it as the best value at 9.32 with free shipping on prime. If you want you can order a single box for only 4.95 but that is considered an “add on order” by Amazon because it is such a small order, but if you are going to be ordering at least 25 dollars that is also and option.
They also have a smoked version of this salt and I am totally in love with it. It is like sprinkling magic on about any meat, specifically grilled pork, beef or fish. Since I first posted this article I now have three salt boxes in my home. One for plain old Kosher, one for regular Maldon and one for Smoked Maldon.

P.S. – For some reason the smoked version is one with stupid pricing on the larger size. A 4.4 ounce box is about 6 bucks but the 8.8 ounce box is like 30 something dollars, so if you want more buy multiple boxes of the smaller size.
