Sea bass with salt
Whoever says sea bass can also say sea bream. Both fish are cooked perfectly in salt and have a much richer flavor than if they were cooked in the oven or in the pan.

Recipe type: Fishes
Rations: 2

Preparation time: 
Cooking time: 
Total time: 

  • Large sea bass.
  • Coarse Jumsal salt.
  • Water.

  1. The first thing you should do is turn on the oven to preheat it to 200 degrees or so.
  2. Now, take a bowl and create a base with the coarse Jumsal salt. This way you will prevent the fish from sticking. Be generous when you add it because if you cover it completely with salt it will retain a better flavor (it will come out juicier).
  3. Next, put the fish (sea bass or sea bream). A little trick that we will reveal to you is to first run it through the water tap. This way, when it is wet, the salt will adhere better.
  4. The next step is to cover it with salt. Of course, leave the head and tail free because they will be the ones that will help you know if it is ready.
  5. Put it in the oven and wait about 20-50 minutes. Everything will depend on the weight of the fish. If it is a kilo, 20 minutes will be enough. If it is a kilo and a half, leave it for 25 minutes at most. For 2 kilos, 30-35 minutes. And so.
  6. When you see that the tail appears rather tanned, and that the eyes seem to have dried out or lost their shine, it will be time to take it out.
  7. The salt will have turned into a crust, so you will have to use a knife or similar to break it little by little and release the sea bass, which will be very tasty because it will have been cooked in its juice.

Loin with salt in the microwave
For those who cannot dedicate much time to the kitchen, but do not want to sacrifice eating well, we leave you a recipe that is made in just 30 minutes.

Recipe type: Meat
Rations: 4

Preparation time: 
Cooking time: 
Total time: 

  • One kilo of pork loin.
  • Jumsal coarse salt.
  • Accompanying sauce: mayonnaise, mustard…

  1. Start by selecting a microwave-safe mold. Next, you will have to put a base of coarse salt that covers the bottom.
  2. On top you should put the loin. We recommend that it be an uncut piece so that it retains its flavor). You can soak it in water first to help the salt stick and thus covering it will be easier.
  3. Now you should cover the meat completely. He tries to squeeze it a little to form a kind of shell so that it doesn't fall when he moves it.
  4. Put it in the microwave and turn it to maximum, with the grill option if you have it, and for about 20 minutes. Even so, we recommend that you check because each microwave is different.
  5. Once you see it toasted it will be time to take it out. Start removing the salt and remove the tenderloin from the source to remove all the salt it has.
  6. Cut into slices. We recommend that they be rather thin because the flavor will be much better, but the thickness is up to your taste.
  7. Serve with a sauce and enjoy. Another option is to add some Jumsal salt flakes to give it an extra touch (don't worry, it won't taste too salty).
