Salt is an essential nutrient and crispy is the word we use to describe the sound of something light and thin. Blend herbs, spices, extra virgin olive oil and a good quality sea salt with whole grain or whole wheat bread and you have crispy seasoned sea salt. The crispy seasoned sea salt recipe is so easy to execute and as a bonus if you can use left over bread is a small step in the fight against food waste.
I love whole-grain bread and occasionaly I have left over bread that gets kind of stale. So, before I toss the bread, I turn it into an awesome seasoning.
I sprinkle my crispy sea salt seasoning on fried eggs, breakfast potatoes and all kinds of vegetables like sautéed Brussels sprouts, rapini and asparagus. Anything grilled, and the seasoning shines.
Try it on salads or pasta and I guarantee you will love it. A potato chip is crispy, that’s the way to explain my crispy seasoned sea salt. Initially crispy but once you taste it, immediately that crispness turns into great flavor melting in your mouth.
Sea salt, kosher salt and table salt have the same basic nutritional value, despite the fact that sea salt is often promoted as being healthier.
With only 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt in the recipe, the flavors are awesome; all created with herbs, spices and a mindful cooking method. One tablespoon of the crispy sea salt seasoning has around 60 mg of sodium and is packed with flavor, so give it a try.
FYI, sea salt, kosher salt and table salt contain comparable amounts of sodium by weight. I personally like unrefined sea salt because it undergoes the least processing. What is even more important is the purity of the waters trace elements make unrefined sea salt more flavorful, so you can use less.
Not all salt is the same in regards to taste, weight and volume. Weigh one tablespoon each of sea salt, kosher salt and table salt and you’ll see an amazing difference.
One tablespoon of sea salt = 2/3 ounce – 8g. One tablespoon of Kosher salt = 1/2 ounce – 14g. One tablespoon of table salt = 1/4 ounce – 7g
