Thai: ????? (gleua)
While Fish Sauce is the traditional ‘salty’ element in Thai cooking, salt is sometimes used. Salt is most commonly used to preserve things such as eggs and fish. Personally, I use it for a vegetarian substitute in dishes where white soy sauce doesn’t go with the flavor. I prefer the taste of sea salt. Course sea salt is also used in some curry pastes to both help grind the paste and to preserve it.
Storage: Salt can be stored in the cupboard for a really long time. Try to keep it as dry as possible.
