If you've never salt-baked a fish, you are missing out! This is such an amazing way to prepare fish, it's a wonder that more people don't take it upon themselves to cook this way. Not only is it superbly easy, it's fun - cracking open the salt crust may be the best part! You know what it's like? Kinder Surprise. But better...because you end up with an awesome whole meal and not a cheap plastic toy! (Side note: I am not hating on Kinder Surprise.) This recipe combines a variety of delicate flavors that come together harmoniously at the end, and is perfect for springtime. Mint, tarragon, parsley, and lemon - a wondrous combination! Salt baking any fish is fun, but I especially love preparing branzino this way - one of my favorite sea swimmers. So go buy a big box of salt, and get cooking!
2 to 4 large egg whites
A handful of tarragon
