Most exotic salts taste very similar, but this Pink salt sourced from the depths of the Himalayas is like no other. Even a few grains eaten raw will show you it's potential. Use it to add a sweet and floral salty flavour to any food. We know you'll never look back once you've tried some!
These cooking tiles are a fantastic and easy way to impart that flavour and while providing an excellent cooking surface. The cooking tiles are made of solid Pink Himalayan Salt - a natural rock salt - capable of sustaining temperatures to 230-250degrees C, just like a solid piece of cast iron. Much like cast iron, they will also retain the heat for a long time, providing a good even cook. At the same time, you can also freeze them in a freezer and get them frozen solid to use as a serving dish for ice creams or cold starters.
Each salt block has it's own unique colour from the himalayan rock it is used to form, no two pieces are alike, and there is quite a bit of variance in the pink-ness. Regency Spices does their best to select beautiful pieces while minimising waste. Each block is designed to last many years with proper care. Read our Tips and Cooking notes below.

Pink Himalayan Salt Granules Cooking Notes:
Usage: Begin by heating the salt block from room temperature. Gradually increase heat on grill from low to medium to high. If temperatures change too fast, the tile may crack. Use less seasoning than you would normally, the tile takes care of a lot of flavour. The block retains extreme heat for about 20 minutes after cooking. Let it cool down fully before you touch or try to wash it.
Pink Himalayan Salt Granules Tips:
1. Wash under a tap with hot water, scrape off residue using a scouring pad. Do not sock the block in water. Dry the block with a towel or by leaving it outside.
2. You can also put your salt tile in the freezer / fridge to get it down to frozen temperatures, and use as a dish to serve cold foods, like sushi.
3. As you use the tile more, the color may change. This is by the fact that salt will absorb some juices from the food it is used to cook, and is completely normal.
Please note that our ingredients are 100% natural and processed using traditional methods. As a result there may be some visible imperfections. Our spices will have variations in size and colour due to factors such as the amount of sunlight they received when growing, or the amount of rainfall in a particular season. These differences in appearance are entirely normal, and are the result of not treating them with any chemicals, reducing unnecessary hand selection, and minimizing waste.
