Recently a friend gave us a packet of richly scented vanilla fleur de sel. We’re thinking it would be excellent sprinkled on salt caramels … or macarons! What would you do with this unusual ingredient?

Although we mostly imagine using this aromatic seasoning to enhance sweets, it also brings to mind the vanilla in tomato soup trick we discovered a couple years ago. Can you think of any other savory dishes that would benefit from a pinch of vanilla fleur de sel? How would you use it?
