DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Rinse snapper inside and out with cold water; pat dry with paper towels.
  • Season fish inside and out with pepper.
  • In a bowl, stir together egg whites, water and salt to make a paste.
  • Spread half of salt paste over the bottom of an oval roasting pan.
  • Place fish on top; pack remaining salt paste over entire surface of fish.
  • Roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into thickest part of fish registers 135 degrees F., about 50-60 minutes.
  • The salt paste will have formed a hard crust; gently crack it with a spoon, lift off crust and discard.
  • Serve fish immediately.
