Terre Exotique Fine Red Salt 300g

Subtle Nutty Flavors

This red salt is har¬≠vest¬≠ed from Hawaii. It‚Äôs stand out red colour comes from the red clay there, which is also called ‚Äč‚ÄúAlae‚ÄĚ and gives the salt a nut¬≠ty note.

Tast­ing Notes from the Curator

The most promi¬≠nent taste from this salt is nut¬≠ty hazel¬≠nut fla¬≠vor. As com¬≠pared to oth¬≠er salts, this Fine Red Salt from Terre Exo¬≠tique is mel¬≠low¬≠er and less salty in taste. It beau¬≠ti¬≠ful and char¬≠ac¬≠ter¬≠is¬≠tic brick red col¬≠or obtained from a vol¬≠canic Hawai¬≠ian clay called alae, con¬≠tains some 80 min¬≠er¬≠als and is said to be rich in iron oxide.


This salt serves as a fin¬≠ish¬≠ing salt and goes well with fish, poul¬≠try and most espe¬≠cial¬≠ly, foie gras. 

Part of Native Hawai­ian Culture

Fine Red Salt is a part of native Hawai¬≠ian cui¬≠sine and is used in tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al dish¬≠es such as kalua pig, poke, and pipikaula (Hawai¬≠ian jerky). It was also tra¬≠di¬≠tion¬≠al¬≠ly used to cleanse, puri¬≠fy and bless tools, canoes, homes and tem¬≠ples. Once export¬≠ed to the Pacif¬≠ic North¬≠west to cure salmon, it saw a resur¬≠gence in pop¬≠u¬≠lar¬≠i¬≠ty late in the 20th cen¬≠tu¬≠ry in fusion style cui¬≠sine of Hawaii both on Islands and beyond. There has been a surge of Red Salt pro¬≠duced out¬≠side Hawaii. True Hawai¬≠ian-made alaea salt or fine red salt is often expen¬≠sive due to the tedious and nat¬≠ur¬≠al process¬≠es it goes to get it into every bottle.
