"Seriously though, chefs use way more salt than the average home cook and they continue to add salt throughout the recipe, tasting it as they go. Here are a few tip videos that I like that help explain some crucial salting techniques: Pre-Salting Chicken - how salting your chicken before doing anything else makes it that much better. Salting While Sauteeing - how to season as you go to end up with a dish with more flavor and more balance. Why Chefs Taste Their Vegetable Water - how adding salt to your pasta or vegetable water makes the end result 100x more tasty. If your curiosity has been piqued, then you should also check out these videos that explain not only how chefs use salt, but why it actually makes food taste better. Sea Salt vs. Kosher Salt - pro tip: sea salt is much saltier than kosher salt, so use it more sparingly. Sweet, Sour, Salt, and Bitter - how salt helps balance dishes to create that umami flavor that all chefs are looking for. Bottom line: if you use more salt you will end up with better tasting, properly balanced food. Just don't use too much." Source
