Step 1: prepare the salt.
Coarse salt will better preserve the aroma and taste of fish, so we use it.
Pour salt into a plate, add the grated zest of two lemons, finely chopped herbs: rosemary, sage and thyme; as well as 2 tablespoons of water. Mix, the salt should be slightly damp.
Step 2: prepare the fish.
Clean and gut the dorada. Rinse the fish with cold water and then dry.
Put parchment in the baking pan, and pour salt on top, about a centimeter layer, even a little more.
Put the fish on the salt and fill it with slices of thinly sliced lemon and sprigs of fresh rosemary, thyme and sage.
Pour the remaining salt on top of the fish so that it completely covers the carcasses with a thick layer (not less than a centimeter).
Step 3: bake the dorada in salt.
Dorada must be baked in preheated 220 degrees oven for 25-30 minutes.
The salt crust is baked, hardened and becomes golden brown. You need to remove it with a knife to free the fish. But first, of course, you need to let her cool down a bit so as not to get burned.
Step 4: Serve the dorada in salt.
Peel the dorada from the salt crust and serve it with any side dish and sauce to your taste. The fish is amazing! And after all, how simple, be sure to try, you will definitely like this method of preparing dorada.
Enjoy your meal!
