Fleur de Sel or “Flower of Salt” is one of the most treasured gourmet finishing salts. Its thin, flaky and crunchy texture is perfect for sprinkling over seafood, steaks - and even chocolate - just before serving for a light, briny taste. Fleur de Sel is formed as a thin crust of salt on the surface of the marshes in Guérande in southern France. As the water evaporates, the resulting salt crystals resemble flower petals, which is where the name comes from. This fertile area of France, where the sun and sea meet, has a long-standing tradition of producing delicate, flaky garnishing salts. Use Fleur de Sel as a finishing salt over grilled or roasted meats, seafood, salads, vegetables, chocolate desserts, cookies and confections.
Its really the best salt for crumbling with your fingers over salad leaves, pasta etc. I always order more than one container because this brand is hard to find out in the wild.
