I have been on a search ever since, and haven't been able to find a similar salt stateside. Any help in locating something would make my year.

Editor: Finishing salts like Maldon (pictured above) are an inexpensive pleasure in the kitchen! A little sprinkle of flaky, delicate sea salt can really change the taste of your food; all those crystals are different in size and shape than the usual fine-grained table salt, and so they create tiny explosions of saltiness inside your mouth that add up to an enhanced experience of your food.
We aren't sure exactly what salt was used in these tapas bars, Jen, but here are a couple leads. If these don't pan out, we suggest shopping through Market Hall Foods and other gourmet shops, trying out a couple different sorts of white flaky sea salts.
Readers, any leads for Jen?
