Flavored Cooking Salts + Popcorn

My husband was in Hawaii last week for work and brought me back something that I’m really excited about. Salt. Yes, salt, but not just any salt. Flavored gourmet cooking salts from Sea Salts of Hawaii. He got us three flavors to enjoy – Moloka’i Kiawe Smoke, Fresh Hawaiian Ginger, and Sweet Hawaiian Pineapple. I can’t wait to try these out in some dishes in the coming weeks, but I can’t even wait that long to try one at least one of them so I decided to dress up some popcorn as an afternoon snack.


I started with one of those “healthy,” flavorless microwaveable bags of popcorn. Then I melted about a tablespoon of butter, drizzled that over the popcorn and sprinkled some of the Sweet Hawaiian Pineapple salt on top. Yum! Semi-homemade gourmet popcorn. This was the perfect afternoon snack and Grace was napping, so I didn’t even have to share!! The pineapple was a bright and sweet note and was so delicious on the buttery kernels.
