Sea Salt Spice Blend

MADE BY LAGUNA SALT CO. IN LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA

MOUTH SAYS...

We take it as universal truth that everyone wishes for simplicity in the kitchen. Call us lazy, but even the most seasoned cooks among us have balked at a pages-long recipe calling for handfuls of aromatics and countless freshly ground spices.

Enter Laguna Salt Co.’s all-purpose sea salt blend, crafted with the help of neighboring restaurant chefs and gourmet food retailers in California, and appropriately nicknamed “The Kitchen.”

You’re probably wondering: What’s in a one-jar-fits-all seasoning? A lot of the same things you’d find at a professional cook’s kitchen station: sea salt and black pepper, garlic, onion, paprika, celery (in this case, celery seed, which has a much mellower flavor), even lemon.

Universality is the spice of life!

You’d be right to take “use on everything!” with a grain of salt (sorry, we had to). But this balanced blend’s a no-brainer as a rub on roast game hens or grilled swordfish steaks. We’ve also been known to sprinkle a pinch over oven-baked french fries or freshly popped popcorn, cheesy omelets and fresh green salads.
