  • Summary

    Salt dough is distantly related to huff paste, a concoction of salt, flour, and water used to protect meat from the heat of an open spit; herbs and garlic infuse this wrapped tenderloin with incredible flavor while it cooks. When finished, the salt crust will be discarded.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons coarse salt
    • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
    • 1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
    • 2 large eggs, separated
    • 2 to 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
