Salt Story

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.

    This salt is simply amazing! After trying various salts, I've learned that not all salts are created equal. Red Alaea is an incredibly versatile salt. I love it sprinkled on eggs as a finishing salt to get a nice crunch. It's divine on potatoes and chicken as well. I love that this salt is high in minerals, and you definitely don't need much. Just a pinch gives any dish wonderful flavor! A must for any salt lover!

  3. Wow... salty!

    This is great for cooking because a little bit goes a long way. I didn't realize how salty Red Alaea would be.

  5. Decorating with Beyond the Shaker Salts

    Posted by Sally from Seattle on July 26, 2010

    Wow, we just had our kitchen redone and our decorator saw the 4 jars of salt on our counter from Beyond the Shaker and she suggested using them as part of a back counter display-so we went online and ordered every pure salt available and then stacked them two and three hight behind the stove-really "eye catching."
    PS, I actually tried some of the other salts and found them all to be enhancements to our cooking-thank you Beyond the Shaker for "shaking" things up!!

  6. Awesome color and flavor. Super Red. Red!

    This salt is shockingly red. Think red and then times it by ten. Yeah, it is that red. Really tasty though. This is a larger granule of salt, but the color and flavor is great. Lots of uses...especially on a white canvas (fish, scallops, rice, yum).
