3. Adding salt after cooking
Salt is a flavour enhancer and will draw out the flavours of other ingredients in your dish—if, that is, you add it to your dishes while you’re cooking them. Adding salt after a dish is cooked merely adds a salty flavour. Another benefit of sprinkling salt during meal prep is that it ensures the salt is distributed more evenly and gives the food adequate time to absorb it. To avoid over-salting, be sure to taste while you cook.
