Nordur Icelandic Sea Salt (2-Pack)
+ $ shipping surcharge
Salt of the sea.
Any cook worth her, er, salt knows that the world of NaCl goes far beyond plain old table and kosher. But within the family of finishing salts that we use to lend fish, salads, and roast vegetables an irresistible salty pop and crunch, this Arctic sea salt is in a class of its own. It’s sustainably harvested using a centuries-old method of harnessing heat from natural hot springs to evaporate Arctic waters, creating crisp salt flakes. The flakes are then hand-raked, which means no additional energy is used to produce it. The resulting, pyramid-shaped flakes have a clean and light flavor that add a little extra oomph to any dish.

Meet the Maker
When Didi Davis acquired Salt Traders in 2008, she already had a prolific culinary career under her belt: she started training in 1972, opened her own cooking school in 1982, then quickly discovered a love of writing and moved on to penning cookbooks and developing recipes. When she returned to running her own cooking school in 2003, she constantly found herself hunting for fine, artisanal ingredients to use in lessons. On one trip to Paris, she discovered flavored salt and got to work blending her own. We're grateful that her (delicious) winding path eventually led her to helping us season our dishes better.View Full Profile
