Removing the skin on fish is totally optional. You can certainly cook the fish skin on and serve it that way. You can also remove the skin after cooking, but it sometimes disturbs the meat and doesn’t make such a great presentation.

I also like to cut the fish into individual portions before cooking. It’s easier and much neater.
