Himalayan Salt Plates, Slabs, and Bowls
Himalayan Salt Plates and Slabs: Leading chefs have already discovered the unique and wonderful ways in which to use our Himalayan Salt Plates - which are naturally artisan-crafted from ethically sourced primordial ocean deposits that have been protected in the remote, pristine Himalayan Mountains for 250 million years. Perfect chilled for serving sushi, salads, appetizers, fruits, or heated in the oven or on a direct gas flame for cooking vegetables and thinly sliced meats, fish, poultry, or searing prawns and seafood, grilling kabobs, and for gourmet desserts that call for just a hint of good salt.

The Himalayan Salt Slab's clean, light, delicate mineral-rich flavor enhances foods you cook or serve, yet does not over salt flavors. Cooking and care instructions are below, and come with each item.
COOKING INSTRUCTIONS Himalayan Salt Plates can be chilled in the freezer for beautiful presentations of desserts, ice cream, fruit and cheese platters, sashimi, carpaccio, crudites, and more, or heated on the gas stovetop, barbeque, or in the oven with near perfect heat distribution. Since the Himalayan Salt Plates and Himalayan Salt Slabs are natural products, heating the plates may change the appearance, bringing out natural inclusions. If you find you have a favorite, you may want to keep it for serving, and use one just for cooking.
SPECIAL NOTE ON COOKING on the HIMALAYAN SALT SLABS AND PLATES DO NOT USE BUTTER. Butter has a high water content and will pull too much salt, overpowering the flavor of your food. For the best results, use a high quality organic olive oil or vegetable oil, which creates a light layer, allowing just the right amount of salt to flavor your dish.
Heating on Electric Stove use a flame tamer to raise the Himalayan salt plate above the burner.
Heating on Gas Range/Grill Heat on a low flame until warm, gradually increasing to medium, then high until desired temperature is reached, generally around 15-20 minutes.
For Oven heat your Himalayan Salt Slab at 250 degrees for first 10-12 minutes, then increase to 400F. Note: Certain foods can discolor your Himalayan salt plate but do not change its ability to cook great food.
CARE AND STORAGE After use, let your Himalayan Salt Plate cool completely to room temperature. TO WASH: Rinse lightly, quickly, and scrub vigorously with a steel wool scrubby. Rinse again quickly. DO NOT USE SOAP. DO NOT PLACE IN DISHWASHER. DO NOT SUBMERGE IN WATER. Dry with a clean cloth and allow to further air dry. Store in location with low humidity. Do not store on metal, copper, or bronze surfaces. Himalayan salt does not require the use of any cleanser as it is naturally antimicrobial.
Note that our Himalayan Salt Plates are natural, artisan-carved products and each one is unique in characteristics, including color, inclusions, and slight size variations. Each HimalaSalt Salt Slab, Plate or Bowl may also have a different threshold for pressure and temperature.
