For this recipe we are going to need Maldon salt. Maldon salt is a unique pyramid-shaped salt that is thought to be used to garnish meat, fish, vegetables or even desserts. What makes it so distinctive is its delicate, soft crunch. It is not as strong as the conventional salt. However, it gives to every dish a pinch of fresh intensity. If you have already tried it, you know what I am talking about. It is used worldwide by the best chefs. This of course comes with a price. But, is it worth it? Definitely.
If you are looking for a substitute, for this dish, I recommend any other kind of fine salt.
