Salt blocks are pure pink Himalayan salt slabs that can barbecue, bake, sauté, or cure meals. Cooking on a salt block has the advantage of allowing flavors to develop while the dish cooks on the block and the flavorful saltiness is cooked into the food.
When using salt blocks in cooking, properly heat the block. Before using the block, it should be warm. Otherwise, your dish will be over-salted. The block’s temperature should be around 450 degrees Fahrenheit. If you have a high-end oven, a high-end salt block would be a wise investment.
