Boutique Hostal Salinas Traditional Fish Baked in Salt

Looks unusual, right? Drawing on the heritage of the area in which it is located, Ibiza restaurant Boutique Hostal Salinas have revived a classic Las Salinas seafood dish for summer 2012, the traditional Ibicenco Raya en Sal (translating to skate fish in salt). According to the recipe’s legend, local fisherman had trouble selling skate fish (which tastes similar to mackeral) when it was freshly caught due to its particularly pungent ‘fishy’ aroma, so would take it home to their families. The bone-free fish would be baked in a bed of Salinas salt (above) and served with a simple salad and a squeeze of lemon or prepared either in a smokey, sweet red pepper sauce (shown below) or – Salinas on your plate with no hint of a smell!
