  1. Place your fish on the cutting board.
  2. Grab the tail end of the fish and make a small angled cut through the flesh but not through the skin. Slide the knife along the skin, not cutting through it but separating it from the flesh of the fish as you slide down.
  3. Remove the skin from the fish entirely. Use in recipe as directed.
