While on a recent trip to Bonita Beach, I enjoyed a light and flavorful meal prepared by a local chef. One of the most notable things about this delectable meal (apart from the food itself) was the Himalayan Salt Block that the shrimp appetizer was served on. In addition to enhancing the savory flavor of dishes, the marble-like surface of a Himalayan Salt Block is an incredibly unique way to serve appetizers. The other bonus is that this serving platter is an excellent heat conductor so it keeps hot things hot and cool things cool. You can even cook thinly sliced meats and fish directly on the block! If you’re thinking of one for Mother’s Day, or as a self-gift you can find some pretty cool ones at William-Sonoma or Amazon.com.
