too coarse

i have used hawaiian salt and it’s always been a fine grind. this very coarse grind is not what i expected and i wish it would have been in the description – i will definitely never buy this again

Quite hard crystals not as good as others

I got this and “Course Gray Sea Salt” from Brittany both from Amazon. The crystals in this salt tend to be very hard and hence are more like little stones than anything else and also do not impart as much flavor as you eat them added to your meal.

I have not tried grinding them up. The other salt was not as hard crystals and added a lot of good flavor to the meals I added it to (sprinkling a little on top).

I will not get this again. I will get the other again.

It will last you forever unless you are a salt junky looking for high blood pressure, as this amount of salt is a HUGE amount of salt in you want to stay healthy. Just a tiny bit with each meal is plenty, and that is the problem here! The tiny bit doesn’t impart much flavor or texture. The Brittany did.

Hawaiian Red Sea Salt

Great sea salt! You don’t have to use very much, just a pinch to obtain great results & great taste. Recommend highly, if you haven’t tried it…please do so.

Worth the Price

I love trying out different spices and salts. This salt claims to have a sort of clay taste afterwards and it really does. The price was right and the size of the bag was good also. I sometimes just take a pinch and enjoy it.

First Time Using…and Love It!!!

OMG wow! This stuff is awesome. The flavor is incredible, and it allows for great color contrast in certain dishes (e.g. I sprinkle it on some hummus for color + flavor). It works awesome for fish and veggies. The flavor is phenomenal, and the amount you need for that salty taste is perfect. We ordered several different salts (pink, gray, black, etc.)….but this one is, by far, our favorite over all. It tastes so clean!!!

You want good flavor without the unhealthy punch of regular salt? This is your answer. Very versatile and welcome.

Kalua Pork? Yes Please!

This feedback concerns Black Hawaiian Sea Salt and Hawaiian Red ‘Alaea Sea Salt from the Spice Lab. We had come across a recipe for slow cooker Kalua Pork on a Wednesday and it recommended using these two kinds of salt. (My wife has a food porn problem and Pinterest is not helping.) We ordered the salt that afternoon with free Amazon Prime shipping and received them on Friday. We prepared the pork and started cooking it that night and by Saturday night we were in Kalua Pork heaven! Here’s the recipe we found: [….] (I don’t know why Fuji Mama is the whitest person I’ve ever seen?!)

The perfect salt to cook with …

With a nice salty taste you don’t need to put much on the food. A little bit will do you, and gives great flavor to your food. I use it in all my dishes!

Nice salt in my grinder

Maybe it’s a psychological thang but it seems to have a nice salty mineral flavor without being tooo aggressive. I like to use it in a grinder and use to finish off my steaks and roasts. Will buy more soon

Hawaiian Sale

Cost including delivery was the same as if I bought it in Hawaii. Delivery took 2 days from order. Of course, I am very close to the warehouse.

Red Sea Salt

This product is very good! It makes a delicious addition to simple recipes. Try sprinkling a bit of it on a pork chop or simply rubbing it briskly on some deveined kale for a couple of minutes and rinsing it off. It should be in every kitchen!

You will never use regular salt again

This makes everything taste a little better including sweets. It is not as “salty” as regular salt, so it has a more subtle earthy effect.

Made a delicious roast with this

Was given a recipe by a coworker that required Hawaiian Sea Salt. The recipe came out perfect after using this product. Well made and well packaged. Would recommend.

Black lava and Red Alaea – both great!

These are both very nice salts. As promised, I can taste a hint of charcoal in the black lava and a hint of clay in the red. I certainly don’t consider myself to have a refined palate, but there is no mistaking the flavours. A little goes a long way – another reason this salt is well worth the extra expense. I guess I’ll have to try the bamboo next.
