Sel gris (pl. sels gris, "gray salt" in French, also known as Celtic sea salt) is a coarse granular sea salt popularized by the French. Sel gris comes from the same solar evaporation salt pans as fleur de sel but is harvested differently; it is allowed to come into contact with the bottom of the salt pan before being raked, hence its gray color. Sel gris is coarser than fleur de sel but is also a moist salt, typically containing 13 percent residual moisture.
This traditional style of sea salt is harvested in true Celtic fashion. Taking the salt from clay ponds ensures the high mineral content. Naturally moist these crystals dance on the palette leaving earthy notes. Paired with fresh ground pepper, this salt is perfect for seasoning meat and fish. Certified organic in France by Nature and Progres this salt is perfect for everyday use.

- Being much denser than table and kosher salt, there is a lot more salt in an equivalent volume of sel gris

- Selmeliers tend to pair sels gris with heartier foods like steak and root vegetables due to their mineral complexity
