Fleur de Sol (sometimes sal) (Flower of the Sun) is harvested by hand off the coast in Portugal in July and August, when the sea is calm and the weather conditions are just right. It is a lovely salt, but only the extravagant use it for cooking. Most people use it as a condiment and sprinkle a pinch here and there in places where the salt will shine and its distinctive flavor and texture will be appreciated. It is related to fleur de sel. Fleur de Sol is a fine grain, where fleur de sel is a flaky grain. If the name sounds at all familiar, that is because 700 miles up the coast in France a very similar salt is produced in the Celtic region of France. That salt is called Fleur de Sel (Flower of the Sea).
