finishing salts

If I'm going to use a finishing salt should I salt the dish as I'm cooking it in addition to the finishing salt?

    Yes, season as you go, then use a tiny pinch of a finishing salt over the top before serving.

      Depends, if uncooked dish, of course not, e.g. great bread, Bretagne butter, and Fleur de Sel, as good as it gets. Part of the reasoning for finishing salt is the crunch, thus if using, l undersalt the dish considerably.
