Fish baked in salt


1kg  Fine, Oryx Salt                                           250ml  Flour

± 25ml  Water                                                    2 Lemon Slices                  

1 Dorada or Bream (about 1,2kg, cleaned through the gills)
Few sprigs of fresh Parsley, fired onions and sweet peppers



1   Preheat oven to 180°C

Mix the salt and flour in a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour in the water to make a thick paste. Set mixture aside.

2. Push the lemon and parsley into the gill cavity. Use paper towels to wipe fish dry. Cover the fish with salt paste, using your hands. (It is not necessary to scale the fish before you add the paste, but do take care not to cut yourself). Place in a roasting pan, making sure the fish is completely covered.

3. Roast fish in the oven for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and crack the crust. As you pull the crust back, it should bring the skin with it. Fillet the fish and serve at once.
