A few months ago I wrote a review of Sourced Grocer for On the Menu. It’s a gorgeous little cafe/grocer that opened recently in New Farm. The food is fabulous and I already have a favourite – smashed avocado on sourdough toast with labne. It’s absolutely delicious. The only thing that could make it any better, would be a little sprinkle of citrus salt. When my sister saw I was making the salt she suggested the match and I couldn’t agree more.
Apart from dusted over avocado toast this salt would brighten up a plain piece of seafood or fish, add a zing to a risotto or give a bowl of steamed veges a little some thing special. It also makes a great gift and I assume it keeps for a while considering salt is used to preserve food. Its so quick to make there’s no excuse not to try it out.
Start by spreading the zest on a plate and leaving it for an hour or two to dry out.
Pour all the salt into a large bowl.
Add the citrus zests to the salt.
Stir it all together.
Package it up.
What do you think this would go nicely with?
