About our Glow Sea Salt

Written By GLOW TX 07 Dec 2018

Dear Friend

When GLOW Seafood Kitchen opened back in 2011, we were inspired by the abundance of natural beauty and grit of our neighbors. From the bay sunsets to the windswept oaks, from our local fishermen and fishing guides, there is so much here to be grateful for. Early on at GLOW, we began hand-harvesting sea salt from Aransas Bay, just the way they did when our town was founded almost 150 years ago.

After Hurricane Harvey devastated our small town back in August 2017, we began offering these hand-harvested, hand-blended sea salts for sale to the public. Doing so enabled us to stay open and keep our employees working. The flavors have been the anchors of our tiny boathouse menu since the beginning. A portion of the proceeds of our Glow Sea Salt benefits local ACISD students through our Glow Student Scholarship program. We hope to continue helping our students and community pursue their goals and keep their dreams alive.

If you are a chef/restaurant/retailer and interested in wholesale or bulk orders, or would like bespoke sea salts for your wedding, anniversary or celebratory event, please let us know. Our team is on standby waiting to get your orders out to you. 

Thank you again for your loyalty and support.

Love, from all of us at GLOW 


What does Glow Sea Salt taste like & how is it made? 
We hand harvest water from Aransas Bay and bring it back to our Glow kitchen. The seawater is then filtered and boiled which removes any impurities. We slowly heat the water until the salt crystallizes and then gently scrape the salt crystals from the pans. The result is a strong, concentrated, sea salt taste. It brings back memories of childhood, when you catch that first Texas wave and taste the sea.
