When we eat healthy, grilled fish is always a must on our menus. But sometimes we get lazy, because the skin becomes soft and insipid and nothing is cool. That is why we have turned to the experts of Direct to the Palatewho have given us four tricks to get the skin super crispy and golden¡yum!
Make sure the skin is dry
From Direct to the Palate They state that for the skin of the fish to be crispy when we grill it, it is essential that it is dry before putting it on the fire. To do this, just use absorbent paperwrapping or feeling the piece of fish.

Make cuts in the skin for even cooking
When the fish is very thick, it is advisable to make cuts in the skin, perpendicular to the fillet. This ensures uniform cooking of the piece and we prevent the skin from curling and shrinkingcurling the fish.

Cook skin first and wait for it to peel off on its own
First we put the EVOO on the grill and when it is at the maximum temperature is when we add the fish, always with the skin side down. We left it perched without moving it until the skin has browned. We can press the fillet against the plate to ensure contact of all the skin with the surface, but without moving it.
When the skin sticks to the pan, do not try to peel it off. On the contrary, it is a matter of patience: in about three minutes it will peel off and drop. That is when we can turn it to cook the other side.
