How to Easily Skin Fish

Skinning a fish fillet can be slippery and frustrating business. Here's a simple—and safe—way to help get a grip on the fish skin.


Dip your fingers in salt before grabbing ahold of the skin of the fish. The salt prevent your fingers from slipping while gripping the fish skin. Otherwise it would be impossible to hold onto! (Don’t salt the fingers of your other hand—it holds the fillet knife.)
