What is Fleur De Sel?

fleur de sel

In Spanish and Portuguese, fleur de sel is known as flor de sal or flower of salt. This delicate mixture is also known as flor d’esel. Traditionally, this salt is used as a purgative. Nowadays, it is widely used in food and as a finishing salt. While some people don’t notice the flower-like pattern on the surface, others will. This is the main reason for its popularity among cooks.
