Do you have to take the scales off of salmon?

Take your chef's knife and run it along the skin with a bit of pressure, scraping the scales off: Voila, no more scales. You can tell they're gone because the skin has a netting pattern to it: If needed, give the salmon a quick rinse to remove the scales, or just brush them off.

Can you eat the skin of a fish?

Both the skin and fat of fish collect toxins that accumulate in the waters of rivers, streams and oceans. These contaminants can also be found in the flesh of fish but not always at levels as concentrated as they are in the skin and fat. For that reason, eating the skin of the fish is not considered healthy.
