Wonderful with a warming bowl of soup, this soft, rich, hearty bread copes well with being held in the fridge so make it in advance and it can be popped in the oven when needed. It is perfect for tearing apart and eating warm.

This is a simple, healthy and impressive dish, popular in Italy and Spain. I use sea bass, but you can use any whole fish. The salt crust keeps the fish moist with no need for oil or fat. Ask the fishmonger to leave the scales on but to gut the fish so you can stuff it with fresh herbs, garlic and lemon. The scales are crucial or the fish will taste salty.
