Black truffle salt ideas
Hi all, I was just given a jar of Dean & DeLuca's black truffle salt and wanted ideas on what I can do with it. I spent some time looking at past discussions and they invariable become debates on the merits of different salts, oils, regions, kinds of truffles, etc. I found that interesting but am much interested in recipes, uses, and flavors that work with black truffle salt in particular. Any ideas?
Sounds like it's more of a finishing salt, than one you would cook with. I too was given four jars of different salts from D&D, but not the black truffle one, darn!
I would add it to cooked potatoes, pasta, steamed veggies, scrambled eggs. Anything that is prepared rather simply, so as not to mask the subtle flavor & aroma of the black truffle. Enjoy it!
I always have some on hand and use it mainly on egg dishes and fries. As Phurstluv suggested I also use it on steamed, grilled or roasted veg. Oh, another yummy thing is to sprinkle it on grilled bread that has been drizzled with olive oil.
grilled cheese sandwiches! . seriously, i would opt for milder chesses , versus anything funky or fancy for that matter. A gruyere, or even a deli cheese ... swiss, provolone, munster. use olive oil instead of butter . actually butter would probably would work fine , just use unsalted.
just remembered this as well , arugula, pecorino ,lemon juice,tomatoes (beefsteak) and truffle salt to taste with olive oil is delicious , and i prefer that to truffle oil because its very easy to over do the oil and a majority of truffle oil available at 'normal' places aren't even made with real truffle by product.
