Fine salt has a slightly different texture than table or sea salt. It is a crystalline substance that is formed by the sun’s evaporation of sea water. It dissolves easily and blends well with other ingredients. For cooking, it is great for marinades, soups, and sauces. In baking, it adds a crunch and attractive finish to foods. There are many brands of fine salt on the market, including Jacobsen’s and Maldon Utah.
