New Years Day Lunch

For some reason the first meal of the new year carries some importance – internally.

Although simple, this was a delicious meal.


Clockwise from the asparaguses: scalloped potatoes, homemade mayonnaise,  salt-baked dorada [bream].  Note: Dorado (with and “o” means ‘golden’).

The fish is baked for 45  minutes or so, oven at 175C [350F] on a bed of rock/kosher salt and covered completely with more salt; until the salt starts to brown.  It’s a common enough dish here that all the grocery stores sell big bags of coarse salt in the fish section.
