Shopping list

The recipe for Baked Gilthead on Salt Brick is a simple, tasty and delicious dish that can be prepared in just a few minutes. The use of Cervia Salt Bricks in this recipe makes the fish even more delicious and inviting.

The salt brick creates a crispy crust that envelops the delicate flesh of the sea bream, while the addition of rosemary and garlic enhances the flavour of the dish. The result is an extremely tasty and inviting dish that enhances the qualities of the fish. Gilthead seabream can be served hot with a slice of lemon (optional) and accompanied by vegetables or other side dishes as desired.

Cervia: The salt that gives the bream its intense flavour.

Cervia Sweet Salt is a unique product with an atypical sweet taste. This is due to a number of factors: the history of the saltworks, geography and nature. The product is obtained from the northernmost saltworks in Italy and has a very low content of bitter chlorides such as magnesium sulphate, calcium, potassium and magnesium chloride. Today, the decision not to artificially dry and chemically bleach it is a tribute to the precious element that salt represents.

It is washed only with mother water, which gives the highly soluble whole salt the necessary moisture. The colour of Cervia's coarse salt, which ranges from pink to grey, is a testimony to its craftsmanship and quality. This colouring is due to the presence of trace elements in the mother water, such as iodine, zinc, copper, magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium, all of which have beneficial effects on the human organism.

This product makes the preparation of sea bream very easy, as all you have to do is toast the sea bream on a sheet of baking paper, place it on a salt tray and cook it in the oven for about 15 minutes.

The result will be incredible; the bream will be tender on the inside and aromatic on the outside, thanks to the intense flavour of the salt brick. The Cervia salt brick can also be used for other dishes such as fish, meat or baked vegetables; in short, it is impossible not to love it!
