Basically all you do is lay your fish on a bed of salt and cover it completly with salt. I like to use kosher. All this seems to do is create a even heated croc.

I have never baked a fish in salt, but Thomas Keller has a recipe for Salt-Crusted Striped Bass in his Ad Hoc at Home cookbook. He writes that "cracking the crust is an event." He also suggests serving it with either Gremolata or Lemon Aioli.
