Himalayan Salt Block: The Madfoodies check it out

Shrimp Roasted on a Himalayan Sea Salt Slab

Himalayan Salt Block! What can I say? It makes everything taste great! Whether it’s succulent shrimp, juicy ribeye steak or tender lake trout, a Himalayan Sea Salt Block lifts your foods’ flavor palette to the next level.  Using it does take a little time and effort because you have to heat the block in the oven for 20-30 minutes at 400 degrees. Next, move the block to your stove top and cook your food on top of it.  Some folks don’t understand the effort, but the flavor it imparts to your food….OH MY GOODNESS! It is truly delicious and you just cannot get enough of whatever you are savoring.  Some cooks put the block on an open fire.  I do not recommend this.  That method causes the salt to breakdown too fast and infuses too much of it into your food.  In the recipe above, I seasoned the shrimp with garlic powder, dried basil, pepper and paprika.  There is no need for salt because that will come from the block!  Cook the shrimp for 4 minutes per side.  Enjoy your Roasted  Himalayan Salt Slab Shrimp with herb-flavored olive oil and a french baguette. A bottle of Pinot Grigio will send this Friday night delight over the top!
