fine ground • for cooking, not for finishing Alaea salt is sea salt blended with natural Hawaiian red clay – it is the key ingredient to traditional Hawaiian cooking such as kalua (roasting pig in an underground oven), poke (raw seafood salad), and pipikaula (a kind of jerky). The clay gives this salt a mellow flavor and interacts with the fats and oils of meat or seafood to create a smooth, pleasant texture to roasted, grilled, or raw foods that is truly unique. Excellent with both pungent and delicate meats and fish, also provides a pleasant rosy color to any dish.

Protip: this salt will convey a distinctly rose-red color to foods, so if you are the kind of cook who judges whether fish or poultry is done by its color, you are going to screw up! Please use a timer and do not mistake pink for undercooked.
