I have a question about step 3 on the recipe "Whole Baked Fish in Sea Salt with Parsley Gremolata" from TasteFood. It says:

"Combine egg whites and sea salt in a bowl. Mix well to moisten salt." I have some frozen egg whites....will they work ok once thawed?

You can very successfully freeze and thaw egg whites! Just let them thaw in the fridge and proceed with the recipe. They should be fine!

Definitely. I even use my frozen egg whites (thawed) to make meringues and pavlovas. No problems with them not whipping up, so I pretty sure that the salt crust will be fine too.
