Fish baked in salt

This is a great way to prepare fish. It's fast, easy, healthy and most of all tasty!

Whole fish that is as fresh as possible - I had 2 seabasses about 400gr each
1kg of fine salt
300gr coarse salt
2 egg whites
lemon and herbs are optional - I used rosemary, estragon and oregano

Mix the salt with the egg whites. Spread half of the salt mixture on a baking tray. Put 1-2 slices of lemon and some herbs inside the fish. Cover with the remaining salt and form something like a sarcophag us for each fish.
Put into preheated oven and bake at 225C for 20-25 minutes. When you take your fish out the oven they will look like this.
Hit the salt layer softly with a hammer or smth else a couple of times until it breaks into several bigger pieces.
Clear off the upper layer of salt and the skin. Carefully remove the flesh and serve with a little bit of olive oil and a salad.
