Salmon skin?

I am not a cook! I rarely cook fish on top of that because fish is not my favorite thing .
I have salmon fillets to cook tonight, but they still have a layer of skin on them on one side. I know I can cook them with it still on, but that just grosses me out. So, how is the easiest way to remove that skin? Thanks!

I cook mine with the skin on and then the filet will easily come off once itís cooked. Otherwise I would imagine you simply slice off the skin from the filet.

Enjoy your meal - I love salmon

After fish is cooked

After the fish is cooked we just eat the fish on top and leave the skin. It separates pretty easily.

We give the skin to our dogs and they love it!

If you want you can slice it off before eating. The salmon should hold together fairly well. It may fall into chunks but will still taste good.

But keep the skin on while cooking.

Good luck! A little fresh lemon juice squeezed on at the end of cooking helps with the fishy smell.

I am not a fish lover either. I do like salmon though. I cook with lemon slices and dill with the skin on.It comes off easily after cooking. 375 degrees for 30 minutes I wrap it all in a foil packet.

On Top of Stove Cooking

I think you said you were cooking on top of the stove. 4 minutes on skin side and 3 minutes on other side if about what I do. Depends on the thickness of the piece. It changes from a translucent orange to an opaque peachy color.

I would definitely cook it with the skin on. It will be a lot easier and smoother to slip off after it's cooked, plus it will be more flavorful when you cook with the skin on. I prefer the skin removed when it makes it to my plate, and it's really easy to just scoop the fish up and leave the skin (if any gets left on, it's very easy to scrape off). It would be harder to make a clean remove when it's raw.

I love salmon!

I always remove it. A really good paring knife gets the job done easily.

My favorite fish. I cook with the skin on, lots of salt and pepper. Um, we eat the skin! Delicious...

I tried with the paring knife. It did not work, user error I am sure!
I took it off after it was cooked. It is the only fish I eat. It was pretty good!
