Speaking of Sushi, I can’t think of a better way to serve it.  Putting fish on a salt block is a bit like returning it to it’s natural element of the sea.  If allowed to remain in contact with the salt, a natural semi curing occurs, adding a light and delicate hint of salt.  A Himalayan salt block really compliments foods like Sushi or Sashimi!

My mom cooks food on a salt block all the time, I remember wondering what the heck she was doing! lol Like you said, it’s not just for cooking either, she just puts her cold food items on it too. I’m going to get her another one for her birthday, and possibly one of the salt lamps because she doesn’t have one of those yet.
