What is smoked salt?

You must have noticed that in some recipes we replace it with classic salt. Smoked salt is becoming more and more popular due to its quality and excellent taste. This is sea salt that is smoked for up to two weeks and therefore has an unmistakable smoked taste. You can use it anywhere you want to have a great smoky aroma and taste.
