Fresh Fruit with Spicy Thai Salt

Fresh Fruit with Thai Spicy Salt using Olsson's sea salt flakes

I was reminded of this classic Thai dish at Viand, when Annita Potter served a simple pre-dessert of pomelo segments alongside a little mound of ground salt, sugar, chilli and kaffir lime. I’ve bought sliced pineapple from Asian grocery stores with a little pod of the salt-sugar-chilli combo, but the addition of kaffir lime was new to me, so thanks for the inspiration Annita. This is a great way to dress up pineapple, green mango, watermelon, pomelo or almost any fruit you like.

Serves as many as you like

Ingredients
  • 2 teaspoons castor sugar
  • ½ teaspoon very finely sliced kaffir lime leaf
  • Roasted chilli powder, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon salt flakes
  • Fruit of your choice, sliced
Method
  1. Place sugar, kaffir lime leaf and a pinch or 2 of chilli powder in a mortar and crush finely.
  2. Add salt and crush lightly.
  3. Mix to combine well and transfer to a serving dish.
  4. Arrange fruit on a plate and serve with the salt mixture alongside for dipping or sprinkling.

We made the pot-sticker dumplings and bang bang chicken – once again both exceeded our expectations. My husband keeps saying it’s better ordering this than going out to restaurants as the recipes and food quality are amazing.

I loved the Fresh & Easy Chicken – simple instructions, only a few ingredients and the time factor absolutely spot on. Then came the highlight, the taste, no compromise on the enjoyment of that meal! For the time poor Fresh & Easy hits the mark indeed.

Thank you for stocking our pantry with such authentic Ingredients and quality produce ... I’ve so enjoyed picking fresh leaves from the herb pots and loved listening to the chef's playlist while cooking. We really like the flexibility of cooking over a couple of days and changing the order we cook the dishes in when we want to.
