Preheat the oven to 230ºC.

Prick each potato twice with a fork and cut in half horizontally so that you have two long halves.

Fill a baking dish with a 2cm layer of salt. Place the potatoes face down on the salt and bake for 45 minutes. Turn them over so that they are face up and bake for another 45 minutes.

Serve immediately with butter, freshly ground black pepper and crème fraîche.
