agneau de pré-salé

/AHN-yoh duh preh SAH-leh/
[French] plural agneaux de pré-salé

Agneau de pré-salé is lamb pastured in salt marshes washed by the sea in the immediate vicinity of Mont St-Michel. The meat is always served young and usually roasted. The grazing is said to flavour the meat which is always salty. This occurs because of a wonderful process called “embruns” by which the wind off the sea blows droplets of salt water onto the grass.
