Muroto Deep Sea Water Salt, 3.52 oz
This premium and precious salt is made only from Muroto deep sea water sourced from 374 meters below sea level, offshore from the Muroto Horn in Kochi Prefecture. The water is known to have traveled in the deep sea at 30 times atmospheric pressure, coming from the northern Atlantic Ocean, off the shore of Greenland, to the Muroto Horn during the span of 2,000 years. It is full of minerals and nutrients and is extremely clean and clear. Made by heating the water in special kettles at low temperatures for 3 days, the salt retains its mineral content and exhibits an exquisitely mild flavor with sweetness, making it a great finishing salt for both savory and sweet dishes.
Its exquisite and mild flavor is ideal for using as a finishing salt, and is absolutely guaranteed to elevate your creation. You can use it for fresh dishes like carpaccio, Caprese, and salad as well as fried dishes including tempura and fried potatoes. Its coarse crystals are also an intriguing quality. When you coat onigiri rice balls with the salt, you’ll enjoy the mild saltiness with a touch of sweetness and also a crisp crunch. Surprisingly, the salt goes amazingly well with sweets, such as chocolate, chocolate ice cream, or peanut butter.
