My husband and I love to grill and enjoy trying creative ways to savor the flavor of food. The Himalayan Salt Block has been an interesting addition to our outdoor cooking although it can be used inside too. We already use the Himalayan salt grinder version (Trader Joe’s) every day to flavor our meals, so we decided to purchase the large salt block for the grill. It is suppose to have health benefits, but we like it mostly for the delicious flavor it adds to food.
When you first start cooking on the salt block it is nice and pink. Over time, the heat and permeating juices darkened it and now give it a rich glow. I was afraid the food would taste extra salty, but the flavor is delicious!
I bought my husband the book “Salt Block Cooking” by Mark Bitterman for Father’s Day last year and it has taught us the many uses of the salt block and inspired us with a variety of recipes. Can’t wait to fire up that grill again!
I love the evenings when we grill outdoors!
