I don't know about you, but I like the skin on my salmon filet to be crispy. Crispy salmon skin, perfectly cooked, is as good as chicken skin, IMO.

In a cold, lightly greased skillet, lay your (seasoned to your liking) salmon filets skin-side down. Don't crowd the pan - leave a cushion of space around each filet. Turn on the heat to low. After 2 or 3 minutes, turn up the heat to medium. When they're golden on the bottom, which should be after about 4 or 5 minutes, turn them over, carefully. If the skin is sticking, they're not done yet. They should lift up, easily.

Cook on the skinless side until just done (still slightly soft and translucent in the centre), about 2 more minutes. Remove from pan and place skin-side UP on your plate. Do not drizzle with lemon! Not drizzling with anything and not placing the fish skin-side down will ensure the skin stays crispy and crackly throughout the entire meal. If you want lemon, squeeze a bit on each bite before eating or squirt some on the plate before putting the fish down on it.

This same technique applies to any firm, thick fish with the skin on. Trout is so thin you don't need to flip it. By the time the skin is crispy, the fish is usually cooked through.

Sounds delicious.

When cooking salmon during the summer my dad usually cuts the skin from a large piece of salmon and put it on the charcoal grill for a while to crisp.

The skin from "gravlax" is also very good done this way or just fried in a pan.
