Sea Salt in cooking, an essential ingredient
Cooking with sea salts -red salt, gray salt, black salt or fleur de sel - is a great way to give recipes added texture and flavor over table salt. Sea salt is a great ally in the kitchen, it has a very different taste and texture from the common table salt.
Sea salt, which comes from the evaporation of sea water, is known for its large, course grains and briny flavor. Table salt, on the other hand, comes from rock salt and is called for in most recipes because its fine grains dissolve easily.

Cornish ocean waters give Cornish sea salt its unique flavor profile and high mineral content. The combination of minerals and nutrients means that Cornish salt is truly potent, able to add flavor to your cooking, so you can sprinkle less of it to achieve the same impact.

A hughe variety of salt
Longino proposes a hughe variety of salt: flavored salt, black and red salt, fleur de sel. We have sea salt for all your cooking.
Red salt comes from Hawaii and it contains a red clay called “Alaea,” which is high in the natural mineral iron oxide. The red clay from Kauai gives the salt a pinkish color and a more mellow flavor, ideal for prime rib and pork recipes. Try red salt with grilled peach- and mustard-glazed pork tenderloin.
Black salt is an unrefined mineral salt that has a strong sulfur odor and a pinkish grey color. Black salt is very popular in Indian cuisine. Try it in our recipe for coconut chutney.
“Flower of salt,” or fleur de sel, is considered a great condiment salt, it comes from the natural crystals that form on the surface of salt evaporation ponds in the Guerande region in France. It is often used for salads, vegetables and grilled meats.
When you need a snack which is both sweet and salty, you can always count on sea salt. Sea salt provides an easy and delicious solution for that craving. Because of its larger crystals, sea salt is great for sprinkling on top of various baked goods. Try it on top of chocolate fudge, chocolate brownies or caramels.
