VERSATILE, TART, AND SUNNY!
Cucumber Lemon Salad.
Give this one a bit of time and it will reward you. Chill your cucumbers first, then slice them into ⅛” discs. Lightly salt them with Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt
, and toss. Let them sit covered in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, then drain and toss with rice or white vinegar for a tasty, refreshing treat!
Grilled Lemon Shrimp.
Preheat your grill to medium heat, then mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a teaspoon of paprika, and a tablespoon of Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt
. Toss the shelled shrimp in that mixture, then grill each side of the shrimp for 2-3 minutes, until opaque.
You can salt a chicken two ways, depending on how much time you have. If you’re going to cook in the next hour or two (up to 6 hours), make a brine - add ¼ cup Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt
for every 1 cup hot water (dissolve the salt) and 1 cup ice water. Take the pieces of chicken you’re going to cook, and add them to the brine. If you’re going to cook 6 hours or more away, then coat the pieces in a healthy sprinkle of Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt, wrap them back up, and put them in the fridge.
Roasted Lemon Cauliflower. The great thing about cauliflower is that it absorbs so much of the flavors you give it, and this salt is no exception. After cutting the cauliflower into ½”-thick pieces, toss them gently in olive oil, sprinkle both sides of each piece with Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt, and bake them at 375F for 30 to 35 minutes, turning once.
Lemon Avocado Guac. Next time you whip up your favorite guacamole and use some sea salt to season it, use a flavored salt like Caravel Gourmet's Lemon Sea Salt to add extra complexity and depth.
