Donald Link suggests grilling or roasting this fish, then serving it in its hardened skin (“on the half shell”). You can also use a large, flexible spatula to slide the fillets off the skin and onto a platter, discarding the skin, for a more elegant presentation. Redfish—a white-fleshed fish with big scales that are hard to remove—is an ideal choice, but striped bass is great too.
