Salt Block Recipes

salt block

If you haven’t tried using a Himalayan salt block, you need to get one right away! Made out of pink salt, these slabs of salt are perfect for cooking and serving food. You can find these salt blocks online or at most cooking supply stores. They flavor whatever your cooking and make pretty much anything delicious. I generally stick with using my salt block on my grill, but you can use it on your stove top as well or freeze it to serve cold foods on. Make sure you read the instructions on how to safely heat and handle your salt block, and then get ready to make something delicious! Here are three Himalayan salt block recipes you may want to try out.

Salt block

Watermelon slices

Feta cheese, crumbled

Minto or basil leaves, cut chiffonade style


Pre-chill the salt block in your refrigerator for a minimum of two hours.

Place watermelon slices in an arrangement directly on the salt block. The more the watermelon is touching the salt block the saltier the watermelon will taste.

Sprinkle the feta cheese crumbles over the watermelon, and then garnish with the mint or basil leaves.

Serve and enjoy!

  1. Heat the salt block slowly in 3 – 15 minute increments increasing from low to medium to high.
