i made something new and i loved it! it's been so long since i had the time to actually cook something real and new and i decided to go all in and do up some salt baked cod. . .which is insanely easy -- you should all do it.
step 1: get a whole fish. have the dude gut, clean & scale it.
step 2: stuff said fish with whatever -- i went with parsley, rosemary, lemon & olives.
step 3: put that sucker on some parchment paper on a baking sheet.
step 4: mix up some salt & egg whites and make a salt paste (1 cup of salt to 1 egg white) and then cover your fishy with the mixture.
step 5: bake it until the salt is crusty, hard and brown (like 20 minutes, maybe 30 depending on the size of fish).
step 6: break off and peel away those salt pieces.
step 7: transfer baked fish to dish and eat that succulent sucker.
so easy, so simple. and it looks impressive. go forth and salt bake people!
and thank you to serious eats for their great dinner tonight series for giving me the recipe.
