Chef Shortcut: Try Chardonnay Smoked Salt

Nicole Straight

I found this Chardonnay Smoked Fleur de Selin Whole Foods the other day. It's made by a company called India Tree, and has a distinct smoky smell and flavor making it the perfect seasoning for fish, chicken, or even freshly sauteed spinach with a squeeze of lemon juice. It's a great shortcut to a uniquely tasty meal.

Here is a great recipe for Cod that features this food find:

Oven Roasted Cod with Sauteed Spinach and Chardonnay Smoked Fleur de Sel

Preheat oven to 450. In a shallow baking pan, add a drizzle of olive oil to coat. Rinse 3 cups of baby spinach, 1/4 C. ofwhite wine(wateror chicken stock are fine too) and add to the pan. Add a pinch of Chardonnay Fleur de Sel and place 12 oz. of cod (could be scrod, salmon or Sea Bass too) over the bed of spinach. Add the juice from 1 lemon, a small pat of unsalted butter and another small pinch of the fleur de sel. Roast in the oven for 8-10 minutes and serve.
