SERVES 4; Photo p. 54

Active: 45 min.Total: 1 hr.

The most classic of the region’s (baked in salt) dishes is made with gilt-head bream, a silver fish with a distinguishing gold spot on its cheeks ( means “golden” in Spanish). Grouper, snapper, sea bass, or other varieties with a thick skin also work well; always use whole fish rather than fillets. Allioli is a traditional Catalonian garlic-and-oil sauce that is classically served with the resulting tender fillets. Although less traditional, blending in a raw egg helps thicken and emulsify the sauce for a richer consistency.
