Product Review: Himalayan Salt Plate
This year for Christmas I received (among other food/cooking stuff) a Himalayan salt plate from SaltWorks. (I'll wait while you go peruse the site. You back? Good.) I've seen the device used on a couple of cooking shows and was fascinated, but never got around to getting one myself.
Boy, am I glad this arrived among my goodies. Heated in the oven, it made for a dramatic table-side presentation on New Year's Eve when I cooked the fish course directly on the plate. There is little salt transfer if you heat the plate properly, just enough to season the food. While I would cut the original pieces a bit thinner so they cook more quickly, I can easily see using this for cooking over and over again. You can also use it cold or room temperature as a presentation platter, and trust me when I say anything served on it is a conversation starter and just darned pretty.
Oh, this company also sells bath and spa salts along with their gourmet salt selection. Perfect for DIY gifts and party favors!
