Stir water and salt together in a bowl. Gradually stir corn meal into water and use your fingers to mix, until mixture forms a soft, moist dough.

Divide dough into 8 golf ball-size balls and pat each one into a patty about 3/8-inch thick.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Working in batches, cook corn patties in hot oil until golden brown, 4 to 5 minutes each side. Transfer cooked Arepas to a plate, lined with paper towel to drain until they are cool enough to handle.

Slice each arepa in the middle, horizontally with a thin serrated knife to form a pita-like pocket.
