- Preheat oven to 220°C or 200°C fan-forced. Lightly spray a baking tray with oil.
- Place egg whites in a large bowl. Add salt, stirring to combine (mixture needs to be the consistency of wet sand).
- Cover prepared tray with a third of the salt mixture. Place salmon on top of salt. Fill fish cavity with lemon slices, then completely cover fish with remaining salt to make a thick crust. Bake for 40 minutes or until crust is lightly browned.
