Ingredients

  • 2 whole seabass or trout or other fish
  • 1 bunch Herbs de Provence
  • 3 pounds sea salt unrefined, coarse

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 390F (200C)
  • Roughly chop up the herbs and spread them out on a baking sheet.
  • Wash the fish and wipe it dry with paper towels. Place the fish on top of the herbs.
  • Cover each fish generously with the sea salt about 0.6 inches (1.5 cm) thick.
  • Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 25-35 minutes depending on the size of your fish.
  • When you remove the fish from the oven the salt should have formed a nice, hard crust around them. Crack the crust with a small hammer or a heavy spoon and remove most of the salt.
  • Serve and enjoy!
