Whiskey Cheese Spread with Salt Table Leek, Chive, & Onion Dip and Seasoning Blend

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table Leek, Chive, & Onion Dip and Seasoning Blend

Potted cheese, a blend of grated cheese, butter, whiskey, is an old way of keeping cheese in the house in the days before refrigeration. Modern recipes often call for chives and/or minced green onions, which do add flavor but shorten the shelf life. Salt Table’s Leek, Chive, and Onion Dip and Seasoning Blend lends the same fresh flavor without adding an element that will spoil quickly, which means it will keep for weeks, well-covered in the refrigerator.Ingred

 

Makes about 2 cups

Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces (½ pound) well-aged cheddar such as Kerrygold Reserve Irish cheddar or Cabot Seriously Sharp cheddar, grated
  • 4 ounces (8 tablespoons) salted European-style butter, softened
  • 1 tablespoon prepared English or Dijon mustard
  • ¼ cup Bourbon or Irish whiskey
  • 1 tablespoon (or more, to taste) Salt Table Leek, Chive, & Onion Seasoning and Dip Blend
  • Crackers or melba toast rounds, for serving

How to make it:

  1. Combine the cheese, butter, and mustard in bowl of food processor and process until smooth. Or combine in mixing bowl and whip with electric mixer at medium-high speed until smooth.
  2. Whip in the whiskey a tablespoon at a time. Then season well with Leek, Chive, and Onion Blend. Transfer it to crock, cover, and let sit at least 1 hour.
  3. Taste and adjust the Seasoning Blend and let sit at least 30 minutes to allow the seasoning to meld. If not serving within another hour, cover and refrigerate until needed. Let warm to room temperature at least 30 minutes before serving as a spread with crackers or toast rounds.

Asparagus alla Parmigiana (Asparagus Gratin)

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table’s Shamrock Dust

(Salt Table blends that are also great with this asparagus recipe are Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning and Dip Blend and Tybee Island Coastal Blend.)

One of the great dishes of spring’s table in Parma, Italy, is fresh, fat asparagus, layered with butter and cheese and baked until the cheese is just barely golden. The Salt Table’s Shamrock Dust really brings out the fresh spring flavor in this classic dish.

Serves 6

INGREDIENTS:

 

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Cut off about an inch of the asparagus stem base and stand it in a vase or bowl of cold water for at least half an hour. Peel the tough parts of the stem with a vegetable peeler and drop them into a basin with cold water. Leave the asparagus in the water until you are ready to cook it, but for no more than 2 hours.
  2. Bring 2 inches of water to a boil in a large, deep skillet and prepare a basin of ice water. Add about a tablespoon of salt to the boiling water and slip in the asparagus. Cook 1-2 minutes, then immediately drain and drop into the ice water until cold. Drain and pat dry. This can be done up to 2 days ahead.
  3. Half an hour before serving, position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 450° F. Butter a 3-quart casserole or gratin dish. Layer the asparagus with a sprinkling of Shamrock Dust, melted butter, and a little Parmigiano, overlapping slightly. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top and bake until golden brown, about 10-15 minutes.

Baked Stuffed Summer Squash

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Leek, Chive and Onion Blend

Stuffed yellow crookneck squash was a specialty of my maternal grandmother. Her stuffing was a simple mixture of the chopped pulp, soft breadcrumbs (sometimes from leftover biscuits), chopped green onion, egg, and seasonings. Later on, she began adding dried herbs. They’re a snap with The Salt Table’s Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning and Dip Blend: there’s no onion to chop and the seasonings are all blended into one jar. They would also great with Southern Herb Garden Blend.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350° F. Put the squash into a heavy-bottomed 4-quart pot and add enough water to cover them by 1 inch. Lift out the squash, cover, and bring the water to a boil over high heat. Meanwhile, scrub the squash under cold running water. Put them in the pot, cover, and let it come back to a boil. Uncover, adjust the heat to a simmer, and cook until squash are nearly tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. Remove them with a slotted spoon or frying skimmer to a cutting board so they lie flat without rolling, and let them cool enough to handle. Slice off but reserve about 1/4 inch of the top side of each. Using a melon baller or small, sharp-edged spoon, carefully scoop out the center pulp of each, leaving about 1/4 inch of outer flesh intact, taking care not to puncture shell. Squeeze the excess moisture from the pulp and chop it along with the reserved top slices.
  3. Put them into a mixing bowl, add the soft crumbs, and 1 tablespoon of Leek, Chive, and Onion Blend. Mix well, taste and adjust the seasoning blend, then add the eggs and mix well.
  4. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet or wide, shallow casserole, and arrange the squash shells on it open side up, not touching. Lightly season with Himalayan Pink Salt. Divide the filling among them, carefully packing it and mounding it up on top. Dot their tops with butter and bake in center of oven until the filling is set and the tops are lightly browned, about 30 minutes. Let them rest for 10 minutes if serving hot or let them cool to room

Broccoli Gratin

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table’s Shamrock Dust (or Leek, Chive, and Onion) 

The Salt Table’s Shamrock Dust and Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning blends are great for flavoring weeknight casseroles, especially fall broccoli. This gratin is a fresh take on an old favorite using fresh broccoli and real cream, and thanks to The Salt Table’s seasoning blends, it’s as fast and easy as the old standby with frozen vegetables and a can of cream soup.

Serves 4

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1¼ pounds broccoli
  • Salt Table Himalayan Pink Salt (fine ground)
  • 2 teaspoons Salt Table Shamrock Dust or Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning Blend, or to taste
  • Pinch of dry mustard powder
  • 1 cup coarsely grated extra-sharp cheddar, Gruyère, or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese
  • About 1 cup heavy cream
  • ½ cup crushed cheese cracker crumbs (such as Cheez-it Crackers)

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Prepare a large, wide saucepan or Dutch oven with 1-inch cold water. Put in a steamer insert, making sure the water doesn’t touch its bottom. Cover the pot and bring the water to a boil. Wash and trim the broccoli and peel the tough stems. Cut off the stems and cut it in 2-inch lengths, then divide the florets into smaller pieces.
  2. When the water is boiling, add the broccoli to the insert, cover, and steam 2 minutes, then sprinkle with Pink Salt. Cover and steam until just tender but still bright green, about 6 minutes more. Remove from the steamer and let cool.
  3. Lightly butter a 9-inch gratin dish or shallow casserole. Roughly chop the broccoli and put it in dish. Sprinkle it with the Seasoning Blend and mustard. Set aside ¼ cup of the cheese and add the remainder to the casserole. Gently toss to mix, taste and add more seasoning blend if needed, then level the top with a spatula and sprinkle and pour enough cream over it to almost cover the broccoli. Sprinkle the reserved 1/4-cup of cheese evenly over the top.

Note: The gratin can be made up to this point as much as 4 hours ahead. Let it completely cool before loosely covering it, and let it stand at room temperature.

  1. About 45 minutes before you’re ready to serve, position a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat it to 375° F. If you’ve made the gratin ahead, uncover it and sprinkle the crumbs evenly over the top. Bake in the center of the oven until bubbly and lightly browned, about 35-40 minutes. Let it settle for 5-10 minutes before serving, but serve it hot.

Butternut Squash Soup

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table’s Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning Blend and Shamrock Dust

 

The Salt Table’s Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning Blend and Shamrock Dust are not only for spring or for beguiling Leprechauns. They’re great with autumn vegetables and in hearty fall and winter soups and stews. Either blend gives this fall favorite a wonderful lift. If you’d like a richer soup, stir in half a cup of heavy cream just before serving.

Serves 6-8

INGREDIENTS:

  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 cup finely minced shallots (about 4 medium-to-large)
  • 3 pounds butternut squash, peeled, split, seeded, and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Salt Table’s Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning Blend or Shamrock Dust
  • 1 large sprig sage
  • Salt Table’s Fine Himalayan Pink Salt (if needed)
  • ¼ cup thinly sliced scallions or chives
  • ¼-½ cup slivered toasted and lightly salted pecans, optional

HOW TO MAKE:

  1. Warm the butter and shallot in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat. Sauté until softened, about 3-4 minutes, then add the squash and toss until hot.
  2. Add the broth, the Seasoning Blend or Shamrock Dust, and sage, and bring to simmer. Adjust the heat and simmer until the squash is very tender, about 20 minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning with Pink Salt as needed. Let simmer a minute longer, turn off the heat, and let it settle for 5-10 minutes.
  3. Remove and discard the sage and puree the soup, either with a hand blender or in batches in a regular blender or food processor fitted with the steel blade. It can be made up to three days ahead: cool, cover, and refrigerate until needed.
  4. To serve, gently reheat the soup over medium low heat, stirring often. If it has been made ahead and has gotten too thick, thin it with water as needed. Taste and adjust the seasoning, simmer 2-3 minutes longer. Ladle it into warm soup bowls and garnish with green onions and toasted pecans.

Marinated Shrimp, Avocado, and Tomato Salad

 

Recipe by Damon Lee Fowler, featuring

Salt Table Tybee Island Coastal Grinder Blend and Leek, Chive and Onion Blend

 

Southerners love their seafood, and shrimp is on the top of that list because it is so versatile in so many dishes, especially salads. This salad features ‘Tybee Island Coastal Grinder Blend’ and ‘Leek, Chive and Onion Blend,’ and we think you’ll absolutely love it!

Completely peel the shrimp for this. Nothing is more irritating than having that pretty but inedible bit of tail fin on the end of a shrimp that you’re trying to eat with a knife and fork.

Serves 4 to 6

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 pounds medium shrimp
  • Salt Table Tybee Island Coastal Blend
  • 1 medium clove garlic, lightly crushed and peeled
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons white wine or sherry vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard
  • 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons or more, to taste, Salt Table Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning Blend
  • 1/2 cup washed, strung, and diced celery
  • 1/2 cup washed, trimmed, and sliced scallions, optional
  • 2 tablespoons nonpareil capers, drained
  • 1 head romaine lettuce, pulled apart, washed, and spun dry
  • 2 medium to large ripe tomatoes
  • 2 ripe avocadoes
  • 6-8 small fresh basil leaves
  • 12-16 Butter Toasted Croutons, optional (see note below)

HOW TO MAKE IT:

  1. Bring 3 quarts of water to boil in a large pot. Add the shrimp and simmer until 3-4 shrimp float, about 1 minute. Drain, rinse under cold running water, then grind Tybee Island Blend liberally over them and toss well. Let cool completely, then peel and devein. The shrimp will pick up the seasoning as you peel them.
  2. 2. Make the vinaigrette: chop the garlic and sprinkle it with salt. Rub it to a paste with the flat side of the knife. Scrape it into a mixing bowl and whisk in the lemon juice, vinegar, and mustard. Whisk in the oil a few drops at a time until emulsified and whisk in 2 tablespoons of Leek, Chive, and Onion Seasoning. Set it aside 10-15 minutes, taste, and adjust seasonings and lemon juice. Put the shrimp in a bowl and pour all the vinaigrette over them. Add the celery, scallions, and capers, toss well, cover, and refrigerate at least 2 hours or until needed.
  3. To serve, line a platter with lettuce leaves. Tear the remaining lettuce into bite-sized pieces in large salad bowl. Core and if desired peel the tomatoes, then halve, seed, and dice them and add them to the shrimp. Halve, pit, peel and dice the avocadoes and add them to the shrimp. Gently toss. Lift the shrimp, avocado and tomato from the vinaigrette with a slotted spoon and add them to the lettuce. Toss well, taste, and add the reserved vinaigrette as needed. Spread the salad on the lettuce-lined platter, tear the basil into small pieces over it. Scatter croutons over salad if using and serve immediately, with the remaining marinade passed separately.

Butter-Toasted Croutons: Cut 2 1-inch thick slices firm, crusty bread into 1-inch cubes. Warm 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add bread and toss to coat. Pan-toast, tossing regularly, until evenly browned and crisp, about 6-8 minutes.
