why was a mushroom the life of the party
because everyone thought he was a fun
guy ha ha ha ha that’s a really bloody
good what up guys welcome back to the
fit men cook kitchen so today we’re
gonna be using the Himalayan sea salt
block to make some really tasty beef and
veggie kebabs if you’re vegan you can
swap in extra firm tofu for the beef or
even if you’re a seafood lover you can
swap in some scallops and giant bay
scallops or some giant shrimp so here is
an interesting random fact about me I am
probably a self-confessed like gadget
for it
so you know you’re scrolling through
Instagram and you’re seeing stuff and
you’re like who buys this stuff me I’m
that guy a couple weeks ago I saw
somebody cooking on this Himalayan salt
block imagine your table Himalayan sea
salt this crushed-up one right here but
imagine just a big slab of salt I
ordered one and I loved it I posted it
this past week on my Instagram story and
got a lot of questions about it so I
wanted to break it down for y’all today
to show you some of the benefits of
using a Himalayan salt block and also
just show you just how cool it is one of
the first questions that I had about it
was is it gonna make my food actually
really salty and it doesn’t at all it
actually flavors the food just right
because you get the salt into your food
little by little not all at once the
other benefit of using this block to
cook on is that you can add some
minerals to your diet you can balance
the pH levels in your body and it’s
antibacterial too because all the salts
so you don’t have to worry about fungi
and is it fungi its fungi right its funk
fungi so the first thing we’re going to
do is make a really quick chimichurri
sauce you’ve seen this before you may
have had this before
I’m gonna take some parsley then we’re
gonna take some cilantro pack this in
there we’re gonna add in some flavor by
tossing in dried oregano toss in some
garlic cloves this is about three pour
in some olive oil if you don’t want to
use olive oil you can also use some
avocado oil the avocado will not come
with the flavors sexy pretty mild I just
recommend to not use coconut oil because
that’s gonna have too much of a sweet
flavor and it’s gonna interfere you’re
gonna add a little bit of heat here by
tossing in some red pepper flakes we’re
gonna work those forearms by squeezing
in some lime all right now let it be
known that vinegar is up there on
Kevin’s least favorite foods but I’m
gonna add some here because it does help
I’m gonna toss in a little bit of apple
cider vinegar if you don’t want to use
this you can also use some white vinegar
since we’re gonna be cooking on the
himalayan salt block we don’t need to
add in too much salt here because we’re
gonna have the salt from the protein
from the kabobs
but we’re gonna just a little bit pop
the top and blend and if you need to
only if desired especially if you are on
one of those keto diets you can add in a
little bit more oil here it’s not
required though and if your chimichurri
needs a little bit more liquid all you
have to do guys is tossed in a little
bit of water or you can toss in some
more lime and it smells delicious but I
also smell that vinegar I’m taking one
for the team today a quick taste test
add in what you think it needs I think
it’s perfect as is so here is our
special ingredient guys that I was
talking about we’re gonna add in some
beautiful ripe fleshy avocado ooh and
then we’re just gonna dice this and
slice that in half and add that to our
sauce whoa you can’t tell me this is not
beautiful and then now we’re gonna just
fold everything together just like this
and we’re gonna set this aside in the
fridge we’re ready to eat it okay so now
here is the fun part we’re just gonna
put together our kabob so I’m gonna keep
it really simple I got some sirloin here
some top sirloin some asparagus and then
some bell pepper first off you want to
use the thick type of asparagus whenever
you’re putting together some kebabs but
it can be kind of crunchy and a little
bit too crunchy if you just put it onto
the grill so what I like to do is I like
just to do a quick steaming of these
vegetables these are called stasher bags
pop it in here we’re gonna microwave
this for about a minute
see this is perfect this was in the
microwave for just one minute now we’re
just going to to assemble them make this
somewhat colorful to do some bell pepper
asparagus beef and then repeat alright
guys so now I’m going to take this out
of the oven and bring it over here so we
can cook the kebabs on top of the salt
block you can also do this on your grill
the only thing about the salt block is
that you have to heat it up gradually so
in increments of like every 15 minutes
you can raise it a couple of degrees you
don’t want to do it all at once because
then it could crack your block so this
has been heating up now for about one
hour but this should be really nice and
hot there we go and one thing that
you’ll notice too is that your salt
block changes color just a little bit
it’s not as pink right now it’s a much
more of a orange color
that’s because of some of the oil that I
added to the top of it let’s get right
into cooking so this is a nonstick
surface already but it helps that
whenever you add the oil and this also
prevents any cracking so we’re gonna add
some avocado oil you want to use high
heat oil this brush has a little bit of
water on it so that’s why it’s reacting
to it so don’t be like me to make sure
that your brush is dry without any water
and then just push this over now let’s
add in our beautiful kabobs
I like to put something on top of it to
help to really mash it down it’s not
gonna get overly salty but just to make
sure that a nice beer gets on there
you’re just trying to change color right
there and well I love it man this looks
good look at this this is a really nice
tool to cook on but it’s even better to
actually serve your food off this so
imagine just putting this down in the
middle of your dining room table the
food still sizzling people like today
man Kevin so culture bro okay Himalayan
salt blocks what do you use the dixie
paper plate last thing we’re adding is
our avocado chimichurri everything just
looks perfect
right now this is a great way to jazz up
your summer barbecue or your summer
party even heading into the fall think
about ways that you could do this think
about making some of your favorite
treats like a chocolate chip cookie and
making these on top of them of course
they got to be calorie conscious guys
but baking some chocolate chip cookies
on top of your Himalayan salt block oh
my gosh I gotta taste this
there we go I think you want to try this
this is perfect amount of salt
yeah perfect in my you don’t need
anything to this in the acidity in the
chimichurri actually complements this
dish very well the avocado balances it
out so it’s not overpowering from me you
get a ton of flavor you got crisp tender
vegetables as well you know this is a
win go ahead and get this guys I’m gonna
actually add a link below so you can go
and research about purchasing one for
your household this one here was about
fifty dollars because it came with this
little case which I highly recommend you
can pop these things onto the grill you
can store these inside the freezer and
you can serve your poke hey off of these
as well so there are tons of uses for
this and I just think it’s not a
necessity but it’s always good to keep
your dad interesting and you could keep
it interesting whenever you were adding
in these different elements to your
kitchen repertoire all right guys that’s
it for today’s video if you enjoyed
today’s video and this walkthrough and I
want you to smash that like button and
then I want you to also comment below
your favorite kebab company
it can be a vegan kebab it could be a
seafood it could be a surf-and-turf
but just give us some fresh idea so that
way we can all keep our diet fresh and
interesting and calorie conscious
alright guys until next time I want to
thank y’all for watching keep it healthy
but what that’s right
never ever boy boom bye guys
