  • Place fish in skillet, skin side down, and let cook about 7 minutes. Do not touch fish. Season flesh side with salt and pepper. If skin begins to curl, lightly tap down on fish, pressing skin flat against the skillet.

  • Gently turn fish over and continue cooking, flesh side down, until just cooked through.
