Is it OK to eat wild salmon skin?

That means that it's still generally safe to consume salmon and salmon skin in conservative amounts. If your salmon was caught in the Atlantic Ocean, it might be best to avoid eating its skin. The best kind of salmon skin to cook and eat would come from a wild-caught Pacific salmon.

In this manner, do I need to remove the skin from salmon?

First of all—skin is tasty! So when you're cooking salmon, keep that skin on: It provides a safety layer between your fish's flesh and a hot pan or grill. Start with the skin-side down, and let it crisp up. It's much easier to slide a fish spatula under the salmon's skin than under its delicate flesh.

Is it healthy to eat salmon?

Fish and shellfish are nutrient dense and salmon is no exception. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein, vitamins and minerals (including potassium, selenium and vitamin B12) but it is their content of omega-3 fatty acids that receives the most attention, and rightly so.

Can you eat the skin and scales on salmon?

It's more than safe to eat salmon skin and scales. They're loaded with minerals and healthful fatty acids. From a fine dining perspective you wouldn't really want to eat the scales as they are. They'll get stuck in your teeth and so forth.
