Gift-Worthy Recipes: Citrus Sea Salt
Flavored sea salts make great gifts any time of the year. Since flavored salts last a long time, so there is no urgency for the gift recipient to consume this particular food item quickly. You can’t say the same about fudge, meats and cheeses, and other popular food-as-gifts.
I like the flavored sea salt idea because it something that many people wouldn’t buy for themselves. A luxury food item, if you will.
To make this gift extra special, package it in a cute container and put it in a box with other foodie-friendly gifts such:
- Artisan honey
- Homemade crackers
- Jams and jellies
How To Use Citrus Sea Salt
This citrus-flavored salt is great finishing salt. Sprinkle it on fish, chicken, pasta or roasted vegetables. It would also be good on dark chocolate or chocolate ganache.
You’ll want to use flaky sea salt for this recipe. I used Maldon, the crème de la crème of sea salts. You can find it in speciality grocery stores or online: Maldon Flaked Sea Salt, 8.5 Ounces
Freeze any leftover citrus zest for future use.
