1- In a large bowl, place the rock salt and mix with the egg whites.
2- Cover a baking dish with parchment paper. Spread half of the salt mixture over the parchment paper to create a bed of salt then place the fish on top of it.
3- Stuff the sea bass with the fresh cilantro and lemon slices.
4- Cover the fish completely with the rest of the salt mixture.
5- Bake in a preheated oven at 180 °C / 350 °F for 20 minutes and until the salt gets a light color.
Note: For every extra 150 grams of fish add 5 more minutes of baking (example: 600gr = 20mins, 750gr = 25mins, 900gr = 30mins, etc.)
6- Remove from the oven and let stand for 10 minutes.
7- Crack the salt crust at the head and tail of the fish, then continue cracking lengthwise on the side of the fish. Gently remove the top layer of salt. Remove and discard the skin from the top of the fish and carefully transfer the top fillet to a platter.
8- Serve with roasted vegetables and Carrefour Bio Mayonnaise.
