What is the best thing to do if you add too much salt while preparing a recipe?
If the food you are preparing tastes too salty, is there any way to remedy this and save the dish?
In order to make a high concentration of salt or sugar less concentrated you have to dilute it. For example, if you are preparing some sort of mixture or batter and it taste too salty, you may have to remove 1/3 or 1/4 etc. and replace that same amount without adding any salt to it.
If it happens to be a soup, I would add some potatoes to it. Potatoes are known for the absorbing quality for water and salt. If its a gravy, I would just add in some water. That is the only ways that I know if there is too much salt.
Whatever you do, the integrity of the dish will be compromised. For instance, If you are making soup, then try adding more water or other non-salty ingredients. It may not be the same soup recipe you started with, but it will still be a tasty dish.
On the other hand, if you are preparing a dish where the integrity of the dish must be maintained, then I would suggest rinsing it off in a colandar and giving it to your dog.
