Laguna Salt Company Malted Vinegar Sea Salt
I told you a little about the Malted Vinegar Sea Salt in my March Eat. Feed. Love. Taste Club Box Review, but I wanted to update you on a few ways I’ve been using it.
The first way I used the Malted Vinegar Sea Salt was with one of the recipes that accompanied the box, Tangy Horseradish Mustard Aioli. AMAZING! I served it with roasted asparagus and carrots and it was a huge hit. Quite frankly, it’s fantastic spread on bread, roast beef sandwiches, ham… any darn place. The combination of garlic, the Malt Vinegar Salt, and Wilder Condiment’s Horseradish Mustard (pictured above) – not to mention the other ingredients – blows me away.
Laguna Salt Company’s Malted Vinegar Sea Salt is all natural sea salt that has been hand crafted and infused with malt vinegar. The tanginess is subtle enough to use anywhere you’d normally use table salt. It adds a little kick without dominating anything you use it on. When I first ventured out and used it in place of traditional sea salt, I was a little nervous. I sprinkled a little into my scrambled eggs one morning and was amazed at how it simply enhanced the flavor without dominating the conversation. I guess I’d expected it to usurp the egg’s authority – which it did not whatsoever!
I use it regularly on eggs now – as well as a lot of other food.
I’ve sprinkled each of the following with the Malted Vinegar Sea Salt – with perfect results each time:
- pasta salad
- blackened catfish (awesome “kick!”)
- scrambled eggs/over-easy eggs
- baked potato
This morning, I tried something that was extra special. I had made fried potatoes with onions for supper last night and had some left over. I decided to “get cute” – something we food bloggers live for – and see if I could achieve a “German Fries” flavor with my beloved Malted Vinegar Sea Salt – without going through the trouble of measuring out vinegar and sugar and without adding bacon to the production. I wanted the jazziness of German Fries without having to strike up the whole band.
Nailed it. Nailed it. Nailed itttttttt.
A little crumbled bacon and chives or green onions on top would have sent it right through the roof.
The Malted Vinegar Sea Salt even exceeded my expectations by providing the flavor I was looking for while avoiding the fuss I wan’t looking for.
Again, here’s the food blogger/foodie in me taking over, but there’s something else I love about this salt. As you may or may not know, I have a total salt obsession. Same with pepper, but this is salt’s big moment.. I have salt boxes in the kitchen with Pink Himalayan Salt, Sea Salt, Kosher Salt, Truffle Salt, and various gourmet salts. I just get a huge Rockette worthy kick out of having “special” salts that most others don’t have. When it comes to this wonderful Malted Vinegar Sea Salt…
BOOM!! It’s deliciously original and unique (literally deliciously) and I’d be lying if I said that didn’t give me the gigglesnorts.
If you find yourself looking for the perfect gift for any cook or foodie in your life, this salt will make you a legend.
