Product of the week: Irish Atlantic Sea Salt

One of my favourite and most talked about desserts which I make is a Dark Chili Chocolate Mousse, with a garnish of sea salt, served with delicious vanilla coffee. In recent times, the one ingredient which has seen a renaissance is that of sea salt which is certainly in vogue at the moment.

Irish Atlantic Sea Salt which is harvested by hand from the crystal clear waters of the Irish Atlantic, on the picturesque Beara Peninsula in West Cork. Only the very purest Irish Atlantic seawater is gently evaporated, using time honoured artisan techniques, to produce pure and natural sea salt flakes.

Launched in 2009 by Michael O' Neill as a first of its kind in the Irish market, the product is going from strength to strength with food markets such as Dean & Deluca in New York wanting to stock their line. Irish Atlantic Sea salt is a great match over spring lamb for Easter dinner or sprinkled lightly over a goats cheese salad to give your salad that extra taste and crunch.

If you really want to impress your family and friends this Easter, why not try and get some of fresh sea water and boil your potatoes in seawater for an ultimate boiled potato.
