Spanish Salt Baked Fish (lubina a la Sal)
- 3 to 3-1/2 pound sea bass (oily fish)
- 2-1/2 pounds course salt
- 1 cup flour
When cleaning the sea bass, make as small a cut as possible. You can leave the scales. After cleaning the fish, insert some parsley inside the fish. Mix the salt with the flour. Take about 1/2 of the mixture and form a base the size of the fish on a baking pan. The edge of the base must have a ridge as high as the fish when laid on its side. Place the fish inside the base of salt. Take the rest of the salt mixture and form a cover over the fish. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes. After you take it out of the oven, remove the top cover of salt. Carefully remove the spine and the skin will come off the fish and hopefully most of the bones. Serve with mayonnaise which could be spiced to your special taste.
