    Skin on Hake Fillets

    My partners and i are having a debate about the skin on hake fillets.

    I believe it should be skinned before being served to the customer while some food stores serve the fish with the skin on.

    They believe that the skin is left on the 1 side of the fish for a reason i.e. the fish wont break when preparing and that customers prefer it so that they can pull of the batter if they dont like to eat the batter ?

    Whats you opinion?

    We use skin on hake in all the shops and have no problems. It helps hold the fish together. If you use fresh and fillet then it is a possibility.
    I personally prefer fish without skin unless done on a hot grill

    Do you leave the skin on your fish when you batter it?

    How do you prepare your snoek?

    we remove the skin from the fillets, and have had no problems with the fish breaking apart.

    I think it’s a preference thing, I like the skin on, my wife does not. I batter with skin or without skin when I prepare fillets. I think that the skin is rather tasty, it has some fats and flavours that the meat does not. Dammit, now I'm hungry. If you prefer a fillet without the skin you can pull it off easily after pouring boiled water on it.

    I will go as far as to say that I would happily eat only the fish skins if it weighed the same as fish meat
