Halibut Grilled On A Himalayan Salt Block With Broccolini

I’ve been a huge fan of Himalayan salt for years and recently got into salt block cooking. There are so many health benefits your body can reap from Himalayan salt. Plus, serving a dish on a large slab of Himalayan salt is an easy way to impress your guests!

Why I love cooking on Himalayan salt blocks

Himalayan salt harbors tons of benefits and cooking on a Himalayan salt block allows you to easily inhibit these benefits without adding too much salt to your food. It’s a mild salt composed of over 80 trace minerals.

Himalayan salt comes from the Punjab region of Pakistan – just under 200 miles from the Himalayas. The Punjab region is one of the richest salt fields in the entire world, dating back to the Precambrian Age. It’s fascinating to think of salt as more profound than just another ingredient in a recipe!
