How to Make Sea salt baked hilsa

  • Scale the fish and slice out 2 fillets from both sides of the fish.
  • In a mixing bowl mix the French salt, white pepper powder & 10 ml of the extra virgin olive oil.
  • Marinate the fish fillets with this marinade for 10-mins.
  • Arrange the fillet on a baking tray along with the marinade, and bake for 20-mins in a moderately hot oven.
  • Transfer the fillets to a clean chopping board.
