Sandip Roy: Hot lava salt

Hot lava™. This is a smoky, spicy, garlic salt. 

That’s what the label says. An impulse buy from a gift shop in Hawaii, I use it sparingly, partly because I rarely have salmon, steak or scallops in Kolkata but also because I want to stretch out and savour the memories of an idyllic Hawaiian holiday..

But now when I look at my Hot Lava garlic salt I feel a pang.
