Zestfully delicious on fish, chicken, salads, veggies, pasta, pork and other white meats, seafood, quinoa, rice. Salt Spring Sea Salt lemon zest is the perfect finishing touch to your meal — your tastebuds will thank you!
Fleur de sel and sea salt are both derived from seawater. Fleur de sel are the distinctive pyramid-shaped crystals that rise to the top during the evaporation process. Like a delicate flower they bloom and float on the surface and must be gently harvested by hand. Crystals are very difficult to achieve. A unique set of oceanic and environmental conditions must align for them to form.
Salt Spring Sea Salt is made with the finest hand-harvested fleur de sel crystals and infused with locally sourced ingredients. You will see, taste and appreciate the difference.
HOW TO USE:
Fleur de sel is a finishing salt that enhances the taste of soups, salads, fish, meat, fruit, vegetables, even dessert. It is important to only use it on food just before serving, and not while cooking as high temperatures will cause the crystals to melt and lose their unique character.
There is an art to sprinkling fleur de sel on your food. Take a three-finger pinch, then in one circular motion high above the plate crush the crystals between your fingertips letting them fall randomly to create a rollercoaster of taste with every bite.
Keep a variety of the natural and flavoured sea salts in small ceramic or glass bowls on the table or kitchen countertop and refill as needed. The colourful array of crystals are beautiful to behold and enrich the dining experience.
