Shinkai Deep Sea Salt (also called Suzu Shio and Suzushio), is a premium Noto sea salt from the Noto Peninsula, Ishikawa Prefecture, Japan. You will be amazed by its distinctive flavor. This is a true sea salt packed with natural minerals that provide bitterness, sweetness, slight acidity and, of course, saltiness. Shinkai Deep Sea Salt is a rich and full tasting sea salt, and is one of the best from Japan.
Like other Japanese sea salts, Shinkai Deep Sea Salt is slightly moist. It has balanced mineral components and excellent distinctive taste. Adding Shinkai Deep Sea Salt to soups, dressings, or simmered and braised dishes both in Japanese and Western preparations enhances the flavor of all prepared dishes. Shinkai Deep Sea Salt is also perfect for use as condiment for tempura, sashimi or fried and grilled fish and veggies.
Suzu Shio (Suzushio) Shinkai Deep Sea salt production was was established in 1998 by Shoji Koyachi as a small research project to bring back a long forgotten salt production process and business to what had been a historic salt producing region, Nagahashi Town, Suzu City, on the Noto Peninsula. After three years of study and research, the company began to produce sea salt with a staff of three employees, Ms. Junko Tsunetoshi, Ms. Tadako Shimo and Ms. Eiko Miyashita.
These three women handle the hefty tasks of the salt production process with only rare help from some burly male associates. Four times each month 20,000 gallons of sea water is processed to produce just 400 pounds of Shinkai Deep Sea salt (Suzu shio, Suzushio). This delicious sea salt comes from the hands of three hard-working, very determined women. Every grain of salt carries their love and message of good health and wonderful taste.

This salt makes great seafood even better. Tried it first on raw fresh spot prawns and dry-pack sea scallops and it was amazing. I now use it on cooked and raw seafood but have not tried it on any meats, probably would be just as good.
This salt is, in my opinion, the most amazing thing. The subtleness of the complex flavor changes with the different types of food. I have to use so little to get such flavor enhancement.
I bought this salt as an accompaniment for the Tsushima No Moshio salt: both are great as finishing salts and using them together we have enjoyed finding a balance between salt and added umami flavor on steak, eggs and some of our favorite Asian dishes.
Has a distinct, yet subtle taste that is so different from regular sea salt. Makes the dish taste different than ever before, in a good way. Fantastic!
Great service, prompt delivery, great packaging. Ordering for the extended family.
All loved it.
