Are you familiar with salt block cooking?

I gave my son a Himalayan Salt Block, figuring I might benefit 🙂 and this is one amazing way to cook!

I purchased this from Sur la Table, their description is found below:

“Each block is cut by hand from natural salt deposits found in the Himalayas. Naturally antimicrobial, salt plates require very little maintenance or cleaning—simply scrub lightly and allow to dry completely between each use. For best results and to help prevent cracking, pair with a stainless-steel salt-block holder. “

The subtle salty flavor that infuses the food is hard to describe, but after your first bite, your mouth is saying, “Wow!”

He made a simple basting sauce with molasses, orange marmalade, lime juice and honey, garlic and pepper.

If you don’t have a Pink Himalayan Salt Block handy, you can easily grill the seafood on skewers!
