Fleur de Sel is a high end sea salt from France. It is flaky and known for its delicate texture and flavor. Most higher-end groceries carry it. I'm sure in a pinch you could substitute regular salt but the texture would be quite different.

Fleur de sel is just a fancy name for flaky sea salt. I use a great brand called Maldon, and you should be able to pick it up at most nicer grocery stores, and places like Williams-Sonoma usually stock it. Or do a quick Google search for online sources.
