Salt Story

At Beyond the Shaker, the color red does not mean stop...instead, red signifies plow ahead, eat, taste, indulge. Our Red Alaea Salt is the traditional salt of Hawaii. Pure Hawaiian sea salt harvested from the Pacific Ocean is combined with native red alaea clay to give this salt its distinctive burnt sienna hue. Ancient Hawaiians used Red Alaea Salt not only to preserve food, but as a part of their sacred rituals. They discovered the salt after heavy rains caused red alaea clay deposits to wash into the ocean. The seawater combined with the clay in small tidal pools along the coast where the water previously evaporated, leaving a lovely high mineral salt behind. This salmon-colored salt has medium sized crystals, perfect for finishing dishes that cry out for color. Our Red Alaea Salt has a high mineral content and a more intense salinity. The red alaea clay is particularly high in iron, making this salt a great addition to your diet.

Add style to your food with Red Alaea Salt. Spice up bread and butter by mixing Red Alaea into softened, unsalted butter. Combine Red Alaea with olive oil and breadcrumbs to top baked pasta dishes, such as macaroni and cheese or tuna noodle casserole. Red Alaea will glow on white, ocean fish, such as halibut or swordfish. Prepare chicken, pork or fish in a thick Red Alaea crust for a steamy, show-stopping presentation.
