This dish uses two Hawaiian sea salts to impart truly unique flavor to steamed fish fillets. Our Coarse Red Hawaiian Sea Salt owes its deep red color and soft, tempered, briny flavor to red Alaea clay, while Black Hawaiian Sea Salt offers robust flavor, stunning black color and a delightful crunch.

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F.

  3. Cover pan with aluminum foil, transfer to oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove pan and check to see if fish separates easily when touched with fork. If fish does not flake, bake another 5 to 8 minutes.
