If you want to make the skin on your fish crunch when you bite in to it, sprinkle the skin side of the fish with some salt.

Put the fish skin side down in to a hot, oiled pan, and give it about a minute to make sure the skin is lovely and crispy.

And then it’s time to get fun with the rest of the dish! Here are some ways you can serve a deliciously crispy-skinned salmon fillet.
