Are You Using Enough Salt?


Cheesey Tuna & Spinach Bake recipe here.

Recently I’ve been reading an inspirational book.

A Christmas present from my thoughtful Irishman, it’s called ‘Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat: Mastering the Elements of Good Cooking‘ by chef Samin Nosrat.

I love that rather than your usual cookbook collection of recipes, it explores the science behind good food.

Samin is a girl after my own heart.

My biggest lesson is a reminder of the importance of salt.

Even though I know that seasoning is critical for optimum flavour, in recent years I’ve become lazy with salting during the cooking process. I’ve been relying on seasoning at the table.

Better than no salt. But not ideal.

So I’ve been challenging myself to salt and taste in the kitchen. And add more salt than I normally would.

Guess what?

Every single time the food has tasted better after the extra seasoning.

Every. Single. Time.

So this week I have a challenge for you…

Next time you’re cooking, add your normal amount of salt. Taste. Then add some more.

For bonus points, report back and let me know how you get on in the comments below.
