Truffle Salt Suggestions

Hello all,

I splurged on a fair sized jar of truffle salt.

I have used it on scrambled eggs, popcorn, and pinzimonio and all were quite delicious.

Does anyone have any suggestions where I might be able to use this tasty impulse buy?

  1. You could finish a nice risotto with it...or any sort of mushroom dish. I make a nice starter using portobello mushrooms, a slice of garlic, spring of thyme, EVOO and balsamic and broil it with a piece of taleggio on top. Your truffle salt would be a fantastic addition!

    Truffles and lobster also go well together as decadent flavours. Any fave lobster recipes?

      I have never had that combo but have promised my boyfriend a lobster dinner so I will be sure to remember that one!

        Truly decadent! We make lobster risotto frequently and finish it with truffle oil. You'll LOVE it!

    2. How about on some good french fries, pasta, or even sushi.

        I second the french fries and pasta. Where did you get the truffle salt?

          I got it from a place in Toronto called the Spice Trader. I don't know where you are located but if you are ever in TO it is a must for any foodie! They have a bunch of different types of flavoured salts as well as every type of organic spice imaginable.

          There is also a shop below it that has the most delicious olive oils and aged balsamic vinegars.

            Not in TO right now. I suppose you can get in in NYC, or LA, or (let me see where else I'll be), urm, Dallas?

            You can get truffle salt at

        2. Instead of salting a chicken for roasting with regular salt, the truffle salt adds another dimension.

          1. Truffle Salt is fabulous on Deviled Eggs. Also, toast a baguette, add butter and then Truffle Salt. Life is good.

            1. truffle salt is also great on buttered corn on the cob.

                Ooooh mama! That is perfect! It is coming in to corn on the cob high season here and that sounds absolutely fabulous!
