Lemon Sea Salt Makes Everything Taste Better, Even Vegetables

Sea salt, perfected. Hand harvested by Amagansett Sea Salt in Amagansett, a small coastal Long Island town in the Hamptons, this totally unprocessed Lemon Sea Salt captures the essence of the ocean, which means not only a more intense, complex flavor but also a much greater mineral content. The Montauk blend is mixed with fresh lemon zest, so every sprinkle will deepen flavor and add brightness. 

Precious and intense, we recommend using this as a finishing salt, sprinkling a little on dishes just before serving. And, no shocker here: This salt was made for seafood. The best fish and shellfish need only a slight turn in the pan, and a finishing sprinkle of this salt's bright, slight zing. We also love it sprinkled on roasted vegetable or mixed into salad greens. 

Our current favorite side dish for any night of the week? Roasted vegetables finished with a showering of Lemon Sea Salt. Instant luxe, anywhere, anytime. No need to battle the Long Island Expressway.
