This Pacific sea salt gets its interesting color by adding small amounts of red clay (alaea), which traditional Hawaiians consider sacred. The clay is found on the island of Aloha in veins of earth between layers of lava rock. The salt is used by the islanders for traditional ceremonies as well as for medicinal purposes. Due to the admixed earth, this salt also tastes slightly earthy. Due to its decorative appearance, it is excellent as table salt. It goes well with salad, grilled meat and fish and vegetables.
Use the red Hawaii sea salt to taste. Due to the hygroscopic ("water drawing") property of salt, meat should be salted just before cooking to avoid extracting valuable juices from the roasted food.
Fish in a bed of salt, pickled anchovies, potatoes with a salt crust.
