Hawaiian Sea Salt vs Himalayan Pink

Posted by tmd15 (My Page) on

Okay; gonna make Kahlua Pig in a slow cooker from All Recipes website tomorrow. It calls for Hawaiian Sea Salt, which I could not find at my local store and was not about to go all over Hell's half acre looking for. They did have Himalayan Pink Salt, which I did buy. Does anyone know if this makes the slightest bit of dfference or what the differences are between the two?

Well...I think the himalayan does have copper in it which makes it pink....but not sure you could tell the difference in a mess of pulled pork!

i make kalua pork all the time, i use kosher salt, the seasoning type of smoke flavoring, i use wrights mesquite smoke flavoring
hawaiian salt is "saltier" if thats possible and if anyone tells you its red/pink salt from hawaii, its alae salt which is colored by a red rock powder, we hawaiians(i transplanted) feel it medicinal too.
