Three steps to dinner

Here’s the recipe for the easiest way to cook fish that I know.*
You need:

1) Some fish
2) Some herbs (optional- I used fennel tops)
3) Salt

Step 1:

A thin layer of salt in the pan.

Step 2:

Add fish (with herbs in their bellies if you’re using them)

Step 3:

A thin layer of salt to blanket the fish. (coarse salt is easier to remove after, but fine salt works too)
Bake at 350 F for 20 minutes.

Scrape off the salt and serve.
Part of a balanced dinner.
