Preheat oven to 350°F.
Season inside of fish
with a little salt and ground black pepper.
Spread a thick layer
of rock salt on the base of a deep baking tin.
Rest fish on salt, and
cover almost entirely with more rock salt. It doesn't matter if head and
tail are omitted.
Sprinkle salt with water
so that salt will solidify and roast on top of fish.
Place in a preheated
350°F oven, and bake for 40-45 minutes.
Remove from oven. Pierce
salt crust all the way through fish. If the tip of your knife is hot,
the fish is cooked through. Allow to cool slightly before cracking through
the roast salt. Lift back carefully as skin will come off with it.
