Industrial salt leaves grit on the tongue and a bitter aftertaste. Get rid of it and lay in a box of delicate sea salt flakes that melt instantly on the tongue and taste of the sea. Sea salt is what remains when seawater evaporates; it retains healthy trace minerals such magnesium and calcium (which are stripped from processed table salt) and is less salty than other table salt, meaning it's better for anyone watching salt intake. Maldon of England is the gold standard; this hand-harvested, natural salt without additives is a chefs' favorite. [$6 for 8.5 oz; maldonsalt.co.uk and premium markets]
