A friend gave me a bag of smoked salt, but I have no idea what to do with it. I don't even knwo if it's sea salt and neither does she- I understand she got it from a guy who smokes meats such as venison and wild boar (which I have tasted from this guy and they are delicious)- buuut I still don't know what type of salt or how it was mide.

what would be something yummy I could cook with it? I have a lot.

thank you in advance for the help!

Its lovely on veg with a bit of olive oil

I love it though on fresh crusty bread with unsalted butter.

This, and roasted veggies too.

I bet it would be great on a pork shoulder roast in the crock pot. Sort of like kahlua pork, they use quite a bit of salt and the crockpot recipe I use also calls for liquid smoke, since it's not smoked in the ground. So the smoked salt might do the trick.

I like it in chili and beef stew, it gives that "cooked over a campfire" extra something!

I make a potato leek soup, & since I use homemade broth, it has minimal salt in it. I usually sprinkle it over top of that :)

I had some that I used on steak, baked potatoes, and corn on the cob. I somehow managed to lose the half-full bag though :(

Any vegetable but I especially like it on dark greens like sautéed kale or the like. It's also a great finishing salt on things like soup. Anything that would benefit from extra smokey flavor!

A friend made salted caramel with smoked salt recently. It was amazing!

Anything that would be good with bacon.

This. A friend put some in a spinach salad once and it was amazing.

Yup, I've been told to use it for bacon flavor. :)

It's fantastic on steak and burgers. If I cook anything on my grill pan, I like putting smoked salt on it to make it taste like it was really grilled over an open fire.

Our favorite local chef makes a chocolate mousse sprinkled with a few grains of smoked sea salt as a dessert for special dinners. The smoky/sweet/salty flavor combination is incredible!
