Have you guys been following along with my Princess Cruises Alaska trip? I was so excited to share a couple of our excursions with you over the last few weeks and today I am pretty pumped to talk about some of the food. Yep, you better believe that the food on our cruise was nothing short of amazing.
One of the most delicious meals we had on the ship was from Crown Grill, if you’re a steak lover this restaurant was made for you!
A refined steakhouse that serves aged and hand cut, cooked-to-order steaks and premium seafood, including grilled shrimp and lobster. With a rich wood décor and a theater-style open kitchen, no wonder this specialty restaurant was named among the“Best Cruise Ship Steakhouses” by USA TODAY.
Something I had never had with my steaks was smoked salt. You better believe that I heard smoked salt and was through the roof excited! It was an unbelievable addition to our steaks that night and I came home anxious to make my own to use on burgers, chops, steaks and everything else I could possibly think of!
We made an Apple Wood Smoked Salt on the grill this week and it turned out amazing. I wanted to share just how easy it is to make and encourage you to make your own!
How to Make Apple Wood Smoked Salt
Ingredients You Need
- Apple Wood Chips
- Sea Salt
- Pie Plate (foil)
We used a gas grill, so we purchased a wood smoking box for this.
First, we soaked the apple wood chips in water for about an hour
Next, while the grill was on low, we place the wood chips in the smoking box and let them start smoking
After that we place the pie plate on the grates with a thin layer of salt in it and let it smoke for about 2 hours.
Be sure to have the grill on low so you don’t run out of gas or use a charcoal grill instead.
After the salts have smoked and have that delicious apple wood flavor, you can use them on steaks, burgers, chicken, chops or anything you would normally use salt on. It just has a deeper, smokey flavor that’s amazing!
