Jane here, guys! Today I thought I’d write and share with you my favorite picks for the best Himalayan sea salt.

I was making chicken vegetable skewers (feeling very Mediterranean, thanks) and as usual, I had my Himalayan Pink Salt grinder out making me even feel better about today’s lunch.

This tasty meal consisted of fresh green and yellow bell peppers, crunchy onions, yummy asparagus, and slices of chicken breasts marinated in lemon, rosemary, pepper, and of course, a good sprinkling of pink Himalayan salt. There’s just something so satisfying when I take out the grinder and grind grind grind.

If you’re still using table salt, have a think and read up on my short article on table salt vs Himalayan salt. Personally though, I just find the latter to make food tastier on different levels. (And have you tried cooking on a Himalayan salt slab??)

Check out our favorite picks for Himalayan salt in our household.

The 5 Best Himalayan Sea Salts

Himalayan salt is by its nature raw, natural, and unrefined. At the risk of repeating that over and over below, I’ll just say that it applies to all genuine Himalayan salt products. The main differences would mainly lie in grade, price, and packaging.

#5: Himalayan Chef Pure Himilian Pink Salt 4lbs

I first received a bag of Himalayan Chef as a gift because friends knew I was on a health kick and loved stuff like this. Nowadays, this is my go-to gift too for new acquaintances whom I don’t know well enough to give custom gifts to.

#1: Sherpa Pink Gourmet Himalayan Salt – Fine Grain

It’s probably no surprise that Sherpa is our top 1 pick. TBH, we’re both good with Spice Lab or Sherpa but I ended up choosing this because of the quantity and size of the salt crystals. If you use Himalayan salt as much as we do—for seasoning, drinking, and bath soaks—you need A LOT.

Pro Tip

When buying Himalayan salt crystals, one typical problem seems to be small bits of limestone or rocks mixing in with the actual salt crystals. To rectify this, especially if you are using a brand for the first time, shake out the contents in a clean container and weed out any non-salt chunks. You can identify these by color as they are white, gray, or brown. Your Himalayan salt is pink or rose in color.

Is it worth the trouble? If you’re asking this, then you haven’t tasted pink Himalayan salt yet.
