Mexican Inspired Fruit Skewers on Pink Himalayan Salt
When we received our pink Himalayan salt plank in the mail, my first thought was, should we cook on it or serve a cold dish?
There are so many different ways to use a salt plank and I had already done some research online to see how other people were using it. I saw it being used for everything from serving appetizers to grilling steak and I was super excited to try something new.
I had so many ideas in my head, but instead of going with something that required me to make a run to the store, I ended up creating a simple recipe that was easy to put together with ingredients I already had on hand.
We eat fruit with pica almost daily. It’s one of the kids’ favorite snacks and I thought, why not use this gorgeous pink Himalayan salt plank to flavor the fruit like with would with Mexican salt mixes like Lucas or Tajín.
Fruit Marinated on a Pink Himalayan Salt Plank
If you love your fruit with a punch of chile, lime, and salt, you’ll love this recipe. And these intensely flavored, bite-sized chunks are the perfect garnish on your favorite fruity cocktail.
You can make this recipe with almost any type of fruit, but it’s especially delicious with pineapple, strawberries, watermelon, mango, papaya and any fruit that naturally releases its sweet juices when salted. You could even try apples, pears, peaches, and plums. For a more savory snack, try cucumber, jicama or radishes.
