Salt Roasted Fish
This method of preparing fish produces a moist, flavorful final product, has a fantastic presentation built in, and is simple to prepare. This recipe is written for two one-pound fish, but can be easily scaled to serve four, or even six by multiplying the amounts of salt, herbs and egg whites used to create the crust.
When picking out your fish make sure to tell your fishmonger how you are preparing it; chances are they have prepared a recipe similar to this one before and will be able to help you pick out the perfect fish.
