The steak is very lightly salted before it's cooked to get flavors going; then once it's cooked and sliced, it's sprinkled with coarse, crunchy sel gris. The finishing salt does all the heavy lifting, flavor-wise, with just a crystal or two popping with every bite. Don't worry if the onion wedges fall apart once you add the peppers to the pan; we keep them as wedges so there are flat surfaces to get a nice bit of char at the beginning.
