How to:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper

In a large bowl beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and zest and beat again. Then on low speed mix in the baking soda, salt and finally flour. Mix in the chocolate chunks with a spoon or spatula.

Scoop the dough onto the prepared baking tray, adding a tiny pinch of the citrus salt to each cookie.

Bake for 11 to 13 minutes, let rest for a few minutes on the tray before moving to a cooling rack.
