Steak and Roast Sicilian Sea Salt Seasoning
Region / Country: Sicily (Trapanai) / Italy
Description: With roots dating back to the Phoenecians, the Trapani salt pans of Sicily are world renowned and the salts produced here are sought after for their culinary applications. The salt pans are located on a flat coast and for the most part below sea level. They have been created in this area for the favorable climatic conditions such as low rainfall during the summer, the presence of winds, and high temperatures, - all factors that favour the evaporation of sea water. Today they are a natural park called "natural reserve of the salt pans of Trapani and Paceco" managed by the WWF.
The perfect blend of Sicilian herbs and Trapani Sea Salt creates this simple, yet indispensable, seasoning that is ideal for steaks and roasts.
