Pink Hawaiian sea salt combines pure sea salt with red Hawaiian alaea clay for a soft, tempered briny flavor. Gorgeous as a finishing salt, it also lends an earthy depth and mellow complexity to dishes. Alaea clay has long played an important role in sacred Hawaiian cleansing and purifying rituals. Alaea sea salt was produced through natural evaporation when sea water became trapped in tidal pools and mixed with the volcanic clay. This salt was traditionally used to bless homes, temples, canoes and more. It is also an ingredient in several classic Hawaiian dishes, including Kalua pig, poke and Hawaiian jerky. Red Alaea clay also has many purported health benefits and is said to contain 80 different naturally occurring elements, including ocean electrolytes and minerals, and for sure this salt has a depth of flavor that other salt varieties do not possess. Use it as a rub or finishing salt for grilled and roasted pork, beef and fish dishes. In salads, it offers contrasting color and flavor to sweet fruits and peppery greens. Naturally vegan and gluten-free.
