We're famous for salt!


Between 1861 and 1865, Panama City's St. Andrew Bay Saltworks was famous for being one of the largest producers of salt in the South. Today, Chef Paul Ashman is resurrecting Panama City's salt tradition with his amazingly flavorful hand-harvested sea salts from the local Gulf waters.

Pecan Smoked Sea Salt, Ghost Pepper Sea Salt, and Lime Sea Salt are just a few of the varieties of finishing salts offered by Chef Ashman's Gulf Coast Saltworks. Popular with locals and visitors alike, the flavorful sea salts are available at many area retailers in downtown Panama City and St. Andrews, including the Panama City Marina. Plan your visit to Panama City to discover more hidden culinary gems. Bon appetit!
