SaltWorks® Offers Bonfire® Extra Bold Smoked Sea Salt, Perfect for Summer Grilling Flavor

Gourmet smoked sea salt makes the perfect seasoning for summer grilling or adding smoky flavor year-round.

WOODINVILLE, Wash., June 28, 2011 — Smoked sea salts are one of the hottest food trends this year, and the SaltWorks sea salt company has developed what may very well be the most delicious and smokiest flavor on the market.

“Bonfire Extra Bold Smoked Sea Salt is the richest smoked sea salt that we make,” stated SaltWorks CEO Mark Zoske. “It’s popular all year-round, and especially during the spring and summer. It can be used to simulate a smoky, grilled taste or be used to enhance the existing flavor of grilled foods.”

Bonfire smoked salt is carefully crafted using Northwest-harvested Snowflake® sea salt that is naturally cold smoked for 14 days with a proprietary blend of woods – applewood, hickory, alderwood, oak, mesquite, cherry and pecan – to create a hearty smokehouse flavor. “Bonfire will instantly transform your dishes with its deep, mouth-watering, savory taste,” said Zoske. “But don’t take my word for it. Try it yourself. You won’t believe the amazing flavor it gives any dish.”

When used while gas grilling or baking, smoked sea salts add depth of flavor, making food taste like it was grilled over real wood. When used as a cooking ingredient, it infuses the food with a rich, smoky flavor. SaltWorks’ smoked sea salts are used in spice rubs and blends, soups, frozen foods, restaurants – and even to top gourmet chocolates.
