FIT CHEF HOW-TO: CRISP SALMON SKIN

While a fast, easy way to cook the fish itself, poaching makes salmon skin soggy. But, it contains protein and omega-3s—and can be a delicious crunchy topping if prepared separately. Simply coat both sides of the skin with olive oil and crisp it up in a hot pan. Crumble it up to serve on top of the fish.
