Do you bake the salmon with skin on?
It’s up to you to remove the skin or leave it on.
Yes, it is recommended to use salmon filets with the skin on when baking. The skin helps to keep the fish moist and prevents it from sticking to the baking dish.
Additionally, it adds flavor and texture to the dish. When baking, place the salmon skin-side down on the baking dish and remove the skin after it is cooked if desired.
