Chocolate and Fleur de Sel brownie


Feur de sel is just the French name for sea salt, which has become as familiar as kosher salt to many home cooks, who have gained an appreciation for how much flavor is gained by just a pinch or two. Sea salt is especially popular in added just a hint of savory taste to all sorts of sweets, and most particularly when they include chocolate, as in this recipe for brownies.
