Enjoy fish with a salty, spicy kick to it. Using a mixture of olive oil, fried garlic, and cayenne peppers, this recipe is sure to please your special someone. The only thing that you need to do with the fish is to clean it, pack it in salt, and bake.


  • 1 kilogram sea bass (whole)
  • 1 egg white
  • 2 kilograms coarse salt
  • olive oil
  • garlic (slices, fried)
  • cayenne peppers


  1. Preheat the oven to 220C.
  2. Clean the sea bass, but leave the scales and head on.
  3. Mix the egg white and the salt, this way removing the salt crust at the end will be easier.
  4. Place a layer of salt on a baking pan, then place the sea bass on top. Cover with salt and press down, but leave a thick layer on top.
  5. Bake for 20–22 minutes.
  6. Remove the crust and serve adding a drizzle of olive oil and fried garlic slices with a touch of cayenne peppers.

If you’re worried about all the salt don’t be. The salt is just a shell around it to help bake it. It all comes off at the end. I found this recipe to be very flavorful. The fish was super tender and just flaked off the bones. It has an elegant look about it too.
