Power of Salt

Salt is one of the most basic among all condiment in the kitchen. It gives every dish the taste, the tang and sometimes, the “kick”! But not all people get to appreciate how useful a salt is. So let me tell you a tip on how salt, when used efficiently, could enhance the flavour of your dish and the ingredient itself.

When you fry meat or seafood products (most especially fish), it is very important that you baste it with salt before frying it, that way, the texture of the meat or the fish would not be crushed on the frying process. Further, salt should be used when you are boiling meat because its saltiness absorbs the meat on the boiling process.

Although salt is important, we should still keep in mind that it should be used in moderation.
