As fine cooking has it, Hawaiian Red Sea Salt is the traditional and authentic seasoning for native Hawaiian dishes, such as Kalua pig, Hawaiian jerky and poke. Hawaiian red salt is a sea salt that is rich in minerals, especially iron. A small amount of mineral rich “Alaea” is added to the salt giving it the unique hue as well as adding a variety of essential trace minerals. Slightly mellower saltiness than traditional white salt. Great for roasting and grilling meats.
