Sea Salt Guide

 

Information to

Choose the right sea salt

As a team, we are all slightly geeky when it comes to our passion for good salt. Whether you speak to our salt harvesters or our international team, who are flying the Cornish flag around the globe, we are united in our obsession to share the story of Cornish Sea Salt and why it tastes so good.

Salt isn’t what it used to be. With a growing awareness of the health benefits, great taste and culinary versatility of artisan salts, cheaper table salts are being left behind. We believe that a good quality salt should be by the side of every discerning chef’s oven and at the centre of every food lover’s table.

So what type of salt is best for you? We offer a wide range within our Cornish Sea Salt collection: Flakes or Original Crystals, Flavoured or our Seaweed blends.

 
 

Original Sea Salt Crystals

 

Cornish Sea Salt Original Crystals are moister and chunkier than flakes and stay crunchy for longer. If it’s texture and flavour you’re after, then these are great for adding a burst of zesty mineral flavour to sweets and bakery products such as brownies, ice cream and salted caramel, as well as salads and roasted vegetables. The Original Crystals are also ideal for toppings on fish and meat, combined with fresh herbs and breadcrumbs.

Sea Salt Flakes

 

In contrast, our Cornish Sea Salt Flakes are more delicate with a mineral-rich flavour that initially hits the palate and withdraws to enhance other ingredients. The flakes are ideal as a centrepiece for use as a condiment or as a finishing salt on most dishes. Sprinkle onto cod or haddock fillets before cooking or top scallops with butter and sea salt flakes before grilling. They will also melt more easily, making them particularly good in sauces, marinades or herby rubs on meat.

 
 

Flavoured Sea Salts

 

Our carefully blended flavoured salts accessorise and revamp any dish. From Lemon & Thyme to Garlic, Chilli to Smoked, as well as our Sea Salt and Luxury Pepper combination, we love them scrunched and sprinkled on scrambled eggs, mixed with butter to create a quick delicious sauce or rubbed into meats, such as steak, for extra flavour, and our smoked salt makes a mean crackling. Get creative, with one pinch you can transform a simple dish into a showstopper.

Seaweed Seasonings

 

Alternatively, you can choose to go nutritionally rich with our superfood seaweed salts. By harnessing the power of the ocean and the nutritional value of seaweed, you not only get a burst of umami flavour, but a huge health kick as the benefits of eating seaweed are just beginning to be discovered. Our Savoury Seaweed Flakes are the easiest way to get more nutrition and taste into your diet, or try our Seaweed Sea Salt which offers an intense crackle of ocean flavour, our Fiery Sea Pepper gives a hot mineral hug to food or finally, our Original Sea Pepper is an exciting seaweed twist on the usual salt and pepper.
