Salt and Lavender Recipes

Lavender is an herb that adds a delicate floral taste to many dishes. Its captivating fragrance can be used in many different ways, from cooking to perfume and soap making.

Culinary lavender is generally safe to consume, but always purchase it from a dependable source that does not spray the plant with harmful chemicals. You can find culinary lavender at specialty shops or large grocery markets.

Pork Roast with Lavender Salt

Salt and lavender may seem like an unlikely combination, yet together they create a delectable taste that’s both unique and sophisticated. Plus, these two ingredients can be easily used in various dishes from appetizers to main courses.

Are you searching for an aromatic and unique way to cook pork tenderloin? Try this recipe using Lavender Sea Salt. The salt and lavender combination will add a fresh flavor boost when your meat is grilled or roasted.

This easy supper dish is a favorite among many chefs and guaranteed to please even pickiest eaters! Pork tenderloin is coated in an irresistibly sweet-savory glaze before roasting to perfection. Serve it with roasted potatoes, fresh green beans or haricots verts.

For a sous vide version, vacuum seal the pork loin with butter/oil, 2 tablespoons honey and 1 teaspoon lavender. Cook at 135 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 hours then remove from bag and reserve liquid. Heat up a skillet over medium-high heat and sear each side of the loin for approximately 30 seconds each.

Once it’s done, remove it from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before adding sauce and caramelized bananas. Finally, slice the pork against the grain for optimal flavor!

When testing pork for internal temperature with an instant-read thermometer (the USDA’s recommended cooking time), the pork should read “thinest part”. Even though it will still be pink inside, rest assured that it’s safe to eat!

You can cook the tenderloin at a lower temperature, though this will take more time. Additionally, you can reduce the amount of garlic and herbs used in this recipe and still enjoy its flavor.

At the end of cooking time, you can add some sage leaves and fresh lavender buds to the pan for a delightful sage-and-lavender flavor that pairs perfectly with mashed potatoes or pasta.

Another way to incorporate lavender into a meal is by mixing some lavender with butter for an irresistible spread on toast, waffles or pancakes. It also tastes wonderful on chicken or salmon dishes as well as on top of ice cream or brownies.

Salmon with Lavender Salt

Lavender is in season now and offers a delightful aroma. Plus, it’s relatively easy to grow and can be used in many dishes.

One of our go-to recipes using lavender salt is this straightforward salmon recipe! This quick and easy meal can easily be made for a weeknight dinner or date night with just a few ingredients.

Lavender salt adds a delicate floral flavor to salmon while lemon juice and garlic bring out its vibrant hue. What an exquisite way to enjoy this delectable fish!

This recipe is simple to prepare and only takes a few minutes! The lavender salt adds an elegant touch to any fish or vegetable dish!

To prepare this dish, you will need a premium salmon filet. Be sure that it is of sashimi grade and free from any bones.

Place the salmon filet into a small dish that fits snugly, and cover it with the salt mixture. Next, add weights to the top of the dish to press out any salt particles and keep your catch moist during curing.

Once cooked, your salmon is ready to enjoy. Slice horizontally into thin slices (removing any extra bones you find), leaving the skin behind, then garnish with fresh lemon slices and fresh dill.

For an extra special flavor in this salmon dish, why not try making the Toasted Almond-Lavender Sauce? It’s perfect to finish off with and can easily be prepared ahead of time.

To make the sauce, heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat and combine butter, garlic, and lemon juice. After melting the butter has been stirred in, season to taste with salt and pepper.

You can choose to use either fresh or dried lavender for this dish, though dried is preferable as it has a stronger fragrance than fresh lavender does.

When using fresh lavender, it is essential to harvest the flowers at their peak of bloom. These vibrant purple blooms have an intensely aromatic scent, so keeping your stems warm (preferably out of direct sunlight) while they dry is recommended.

Lavender Butter

Lavender is an herb commonly used in potpouri or perfume, but it also has a culinary purpose; you can use it to add flavor to foods. Try spreading lavender butter on bread or creating an intoxicating latte!

Lavender has a calming aroma that can relax you. It contains antifungals, bacteria, anti-inflammatory and anti-itch properties that promote relaxation, serenity and comforting feelings. Plus, lavender helps speed up skin healing from cuts and scrapes by speeding up collagen synthesis.

To make homemade lavender butter, you’ll need heavy cream, honey and salt. Whip them together until the butter separates from the liquid – you can do this by hand or use an electric mixer for faster results.

Once the butter is ready, strain through a sieve with a wooden spoon in order to extract all of the butterfat from it. Next, stir in honey and lavender. Finally, transfer this mixture into an airtight container and refrigerate for at least an hour.

When it’s time to use the butter, apply it directly onto your skin and enjoy its soothing benefits. Massage it into your skin after bathing or rub it on hands and feet throughout the day for soft, supple skin that feels amazing.

Roasted Chicken with Lavender Salt

Honey and lavender make for a delightful marinade for roasted chicken. The honey creates an attractive brown glaze while the lavender adds sweetness to the dish.

This recipe calls for seasoning a whole chicken with salt and herbs before coating it in an aromatic mixture of honey and lavender. Roasting for an hour and a half, the chicken becomes tender and juicy – perfect as part of a salad or side dish!

Culinary-grade lavender is available in specialty food shops and online. This variety is more cost-effective than dried lavender and has a lighter, floral taste.

Place the halved lemons, garlic and rosemary (it’s OK if some leaves are sticking out) inside the cavity of a chicken. Secure with kitchen twine then lay breast-side down in an ovenproof pan that fits snugly.

Spread butter all over the chicken and baste it every 5 minutes until it is fully cooked – taking it out when the thermometer reads 165 degrees F. Allow to rest for 15 minutes before carving and serving.

This summer dinner recipe will be a hit with your family and friends. Not only is it easy to prepare, but you can easily switch up the vegetables for different seasonal vegetables too!

To prepare this dish, preheat your oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit and place the whole chicken in a roasting pan. Sprinkle generously with salt and pepper, then spread lavender over top. Brush on some more lavender salt before bashing in some butter drizzled over before roasting for an hour and half until golden brown and cooked through.

Grilling the chicken in this marinade takes more time, but it is possible. Grill it over both sides for 6 to 10 minutes per side until cooked through.

This summer meal is perfect with lavender and honey, and it’s so easy to prepare that you’ll surely impress your family and guests. For an even more delicious touch, garnish the dish with peaches and fresh lavender sprigs for extra flavor.
