A Quick Overview Of Crosta Di Sale
'Crosta di sale' means 'salt crust' in Italian, and is a method of cooking poultry, and fish in particular. You cover the meat in coarse salt - you can add herbs into the salt for additional flavour, and bake it. Some recipes call for egg white to be mixed in with the coarse salt, to bind it. The salt does not penetrate the meat, and you remove it before serving. The 'crosta di sale' ensures that the meat is cooked evenly, and that maximum flavour and moisture are maintained. It also looks pretty impressive!
