Black truffle salt is undoubtedly one of the most luxurious and aromatic condiments available. It’s just irresistible. Most of us, however, get black truffle salt as a present, and aren’t left wondering what to do with truffle salt after they get it from a friend. Here are some great recipes with black truffle salt, that will have you coming back for more.
If you’re looking for a fantastic appetizer recipe using truffle salt, you’ve got one option: risotto. A risotto is a wonderful dish that can be enjoyed by both kids and grown ups, and one in which the ingredients are relatively simple to acquire, unlike many other dishes. For this recipe, all you need are some Italian white truffles, sea salt, grated cheese, a tomato, and a basil leaf. All you have to do is combine all these ingredients, mix them together, and put in the oven.
Another delicious recipe using truffle salt comes in the form of eggplant Parmesan. Using eggplants is actually a little trickier than using, say, a pound or two of grated cheese. The problem with eggplants is that they can get a little slimy (in a bad way) if they’re cut up too roughly; you don’t want them to be as soft as possible. To solve this problem, you can buy eggplants at the grocery store, cut them up into small chunks, and sprinkle on some black truffle salt over them before cooking.
For another great recipe using this salty treat, take some black truffles and put them in a zip lock bag and freeze them. Once they’re frozen, take the bags and break one of them open. Take out the black truffle and squeeze out the insides, giving you a nice little fishy aroma. Then sprinkle this mixture onto your baked potatoes or on top of your vegetables and your baked fish will have a delightful aroma.
If you don’t have the money to buy black truffle salt, there’s a cheaper substitute that you can use instead. You can buy a bag of dry herbs, mix them together, and sprinkle on some of your favorite spices. You’ll have a wonderful aroma and flavorful dish! Alternatively, you can buy real truffles instead; however, you won’t get the nice, smoky flavor that comes from using the salt in its authentic form. Real truffles can also be pricey, so unless you absolutely have to have them, it might be best to save your money and buy dry herbs instead.
The most important thing to remember about black truffle salt recipes is that if you’re going to buy your ingredients, check the labels. Some people unknowingly buy salt that doesn’t have any herbs in it. These are called ‘hypo-allergenic’ salt, and they should not be used in dishes with people who are allergic to these materials. You can usually tell if a salt is hypo-allergenic by looking at the color: darker colored salts will naturally have more minerals in them. If you’re buying this type of salt, make sure that you read the labels carefully.
