Notes
What is Maldon salt. Manufactured in England by the Maldon Salt Company. These salt crystals are unusually large with a signature pyramid shape that also adds visual appeal. Hand-harvested with the distinctive flaky texture and taste that lends a certain piquancy to virtually any dish. The effect on the plate is a satisfying crunch that melts quickly away to let the enhanced natural flavors shine through.
