How do you prepare perch?
Should perch be cooked with the skin on?
Ocean perch fish fillets are usually very thin and delicate. You don’t need to take off the skin of the ocean perch fish – the skin is edible and is really tasty, it is so soft that you won’t even know that you are eating the skin.
Do you cook perch skin side up or down?
Baking & serving the ocean perch
Heat a frying pan with olive oil over medium-high heat. When piping hot gently place fillets skin side down in the oil. Let the fish fry without turning it until the fish is no longer opaque and cooked through. This should take about 4 minutes, but keep your eyes on it!
