Why do a lot of chefs sprinkle salt instead of grinding it?

When I season my food, I always just use the salt grinder and I've never really felt the need to deviate from this method. Yet in cooking videos, chefs always seem to grab pinches of salt from a ramekin or bowl. At first glance this seems like unnecessary work, but clearly they're successful and know far more than I do, so what am I missing? submitted by /u/GISHMAN_THE_FISHMAN [link] [comments]
