My sister came to visit us in Reading. We had such a great time together and she was very pleased to be our very first guest in our new awesome house.
So on the Saturday morning we went to the gigantic Tesco close to our place as my sister and I love doing groceries together. There we had the crazy idea of baking a salmon on a salt crust.
Franz, she and I have already baked a big sea bass on Christmas Eve for our families, and it went very well.
Since there wasn’t a sea bass big enough to feed us, we went for a salmon. On the other hand, the smallest salmon available was 2.8kg. We said – why not? We can work out the leftover, can’t we?
So here I am, flexing my biceps with a fish.
This little 2.8kg fella was about to go to the oven under a thick coat of salt and herbs.
The salmon wasn’t very keen on going into the oven, as you can see from its and my expression below.
Eventually I baked the salmon, and my guests didn’t leave many leftover for the Sunday lunch. I managed to make some pasta with the salmon left, though.
They told me it was veeeeery good! Too bad I couldn’t taste it due to allergy alert 🚨
