Made in Melbourne The story of Finishing salt

As a chef working in our way all over Australia and Europe there is one thing we learn and that is about salt 

When cooking a quality steak what is the one thing we do before we serve it add a  sprinkle of finishing salt

Finishing salts are like the final brushstroke in a culinary masterpiece, enhancing flavours and adding a delightful texture. Here are some creative ways to use finishing salt:

  1. Grilled Meats: Sprinkle finishing salt on grilled steaks, chops, or seafood just before serving. The salt crystals will add a satisfying crunch and elevate the savory notes.

  2. Chocolate Desserts: A pinch of finishing salt on dark chocolate desserts like brownies, truffles, or chocolate mousse can enhance the richness and balance the sweetness.

  3. Salads: Finish your salads with a light dusting of finishing salt. It works particularly well with salads that have fruits, nuts, or a combination of sweet and savory elements.

  4. Caramel or Butterscotch Desserts: Add a touch of finishing salt to caramel sauce, butterscotch pudding, or salted caramel ice cream for a delightful contrast of sweet and salty.

  5. Fresh Fruits: Sprinkle finishing salt on fresh fruit slices, especially those with a bit of acidity like watermelon or pineapple. It intensifies the natural sweetness.

  6. Avocado Toast: Elevate the trendy avocado toast by adding a pinch of finishing salt on top. It complements the creamy avocado and adds a gourmet touch.

  7. Soft Pretzels: Give your homemade or store-bought soft pretzels an authentic touch by brushing them with butter and sprinkling finishing salt on top before baking.

  8. Popcorn: Toss freshly popped popcorn with a flavored butter or oil and finish with a sprinkle of finishing salt for a gourmet popcorn experience.

  9. Eggs: Whether you like your eggs scrambled, poached, or sunny-side-up, a pinch of finishing salt can bring out the natural flavors.

  10. Roasted Vegetables: After roasting vegetables, sprinkle finishing salt over them. The salt crystals will add a satisfying crunch and enhance the caramelization.

Remember, the key is moderation – finishing salt is meant to enhance, not overpower. Experiment with different types of our finishing salts like pyramid salt range 100% pure and milled in melbourne to discover your favourite combinations!
