Hana Flake (AKA hana no shio) is a Japanese flake salt. Each crystal of Hana flake is semi-translucent and glimmers in sunshine. One of Mark Bitterman's favorite flake salts, he says, "Hana Flake is all about the tug of texture on flavor - all about the tensile strength of something designed to explode."
It is icy-white in color, flattened out pyramid with a sharp texture. Hana Flake has a light, fresh Arctic air and balanced taste. It tastes best with snow peas, foie gras, and poached halibut.
