On a walk this morning, my friend asked me what I was going to make for dinner. I said, fish, I think. Then I remembered this lovely sea bass baked in salt we had at her house and It seemed only fitting I should try to make that. I'm not sure what her recipe was, but I found this one on the Epicurious site. Sea bass would have been the way to go for sure, but I was only able to get a whole rougheye rockfish. It was a beauty of a fish, 3 pounds on the dot, and hopefully it will taste beautiful as well.
I used half of the spices called for in the recipe and I didn't have leeks, so I used scallions. I think next time I would skip the spices all together and just go with lemon and leeks. Perhaps because of the way I took the fish off, some parts were very salty, and others were perfect. I will circle back around and get my friend's recipe for next time.
