Nordur Icelandic Sea Salt (2-Pack)
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.
