A quick, easy and delicious starter or side dish
- Large (or 2 small loaves) baguette or ciabatta bread
- Olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves
- Alaea Red Hawaiian Sea Salt
- Cut bread in half lengthwise, and cut in half crosswise if very long. Brush cut surfaces of bread lightly with olive oil. Under a broiler or on a grill, toast bread, turning a few times, until cut surfaces are golden brown. (If using a broiler, you can place bread directly on the oven rack.)
- Remove bread to a work surface, grab a garlic clove with your fingertips and rub it lightly over the cut surfaces of the bread. When the bread is well scented with garlic, brush again with olive oil and toast again until golden and charred. Sprinkle lightly with ‘Alaea Red Hawaiian Sea Salt and serve immediately.
