The best way to remove skin from most fish fillets is to:
1) Lay the fillet on a cutting board, skin side down.
This technique, which is demonstrated below using a King salmon fillet, takes some practice and good knife skills, but it is the best method.
“Bring 1/2-inch of water to a slow boil in a shallow, wide frying pan. Place the salmon, skin side down, in the water for about 60 seconds. Carefully remove the salmon from the water and the skin will peel right off. The hot water will just barely start cooking the fish – not enough to affect the recipe. Gently rinse the fish and you’re good to go!”
So if you’re as challenged as I am at filleting fish, give this a go.
