A friend suggested preparing this strong-flavored fish in a lime, lemon and salt marinade. This method reduces the fishy smell/flavor. I prefer broiling fish because it is quick and makes for the easiest clean-up. Because the fish is a bit fattier, once prepared, the skin should easily fall away from the meat.
