Rosemary Roasted Potatoes with Smoked Salt

OK, this picture disappoints me because these just sorta look brown and dried out, but they weren't really.

They were little Yukon Gold potatoes, roasted 'till golden with olive oil and big sprigs of rosemary from my backyard. Crisp on the outside, soft on the inside - heavenly!

But the main reason these are special? They were the perfect place to try out the new Alder Smoked Sea Salt I got for Christmas. Oh my gosh, just a few flakes added an undertone of woody alder-smoke, almost as if I'd roasted these on the campfire!

Sorry, no precise recipe, I just wanted to share, since they were so insanely, addictively good!! If you ever get a chance to try Smoked Salt, ...WOW! It's good stuff!
And even if you don't have it, go make some roasted potatoes anyway. They're good on their own too!
So, any other ideas on how I could use the Smoked Salt? It's so freakin' good I just want to lick the bottle. Which wouldn't be a great idea, being that it's salt and all...
The recipe pamphlet included many nice recipes for fish, BBQ, eggs, hamburgers... Hmmm, I think I can get more creative than that!

Mmm. My mom makes rosemary roasted potatoes, and it's one of my favorite dishes! I've never heard of smoked salt, but it sounds delicious.

I think the potatoes look lovely.. You can tell how delicious they are.. rosemary pairs so well with tomatoes and the smoked sea salt and evoo.. holy moly.. takes it over the top.

I've been into smoked sea salt too. it's really a great condiment.

What a great Christmas present! I look forward to seeing what you'll do with it next. And your potatoes look delicious by the way.

Ironic timing, I was visiting Saltworks site last week perusing all of the unique salts and wondering if they were worth trying. Guess I'll have to take the plunge!
