1 sheet parchment paper
Serving suggestions: Steamed vegetables and plain mashed potatoes
To make the vinaigrette sauce: In a small bowl, mix together salt and lemon juice
, and then add the olive oil. When it comes time to serve, mix the aromatic herb mixture into the sauce
, see Cook's note*.
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
Clean and dry the branzino
. In a bowl, mix egg
whites, flour, sea salt
, and the aromatic herbs, creating a smooth mixture. Line the bottom of a baking pan with the parchment paper. Place the branzino onto the parchment paper. Cover the entire branzino (top and all sides but not the bottom) with the sea salt mixture.
Bake for 20 minutes, and then remove from oven. While the fish
is still in the baking pan, crack open the sea salt case, push it to the side, then fillet. Place the branzino fillets
onto a plate. Serve with vinaigrette sauce on the side, steamed vegetables and plain mashed potatoes.
*Cook's Note: Don't add the herbs too early, or the lemon juice will cook them.
