Red alaea salt is a rare salt, made from purified sea water and baked Hawaiian volcanic clay – known as ‘alaea’ in Hawaiian. It is harvested in shallow marshes, where the water is evaporated away leaving a mineral-rich salt, with a very fine, delicate texture. In Hawaii, red alaea clay is lauded for its health benefits. Indeed, it contains 80 different minerals, with a particularly high iron content which accounts for the red alaea salt’s amazing colour.

Traditionally, red alaea salt was used for preserving food. But the dramatic colour and mildly nutty notes make this a great finishing salt. For authentic dishes, sprinkle it over grilled fish, add to jerky seasonings, or serve a small pot alongside kalua pork or Hawaiian poke. Also use this super-fine red alaea salt for rimming cocktail glasses, and as a dramatic garnish for pale dishes like goats cheese or poached eggs. 

Ingredients: natural sea salt, purified Hawaiian red clay.
