Tasty Facts

River perch is almost impossible to oversalt, since its meat absorbs a strictly limited amount of salt.

There are 2 approaches to cleaning a perch from scales: the first involves the refusal to clean, because. the scales add crunch to the dish and therefore improve it. However, river perch can also be with a thick skin, so sometimes it still has to be cleaned.

To clean a river perch, make cuts along the ridge on both sides of the carcass, stretch the dorsal fin, and, prying the skin with your fingers, pull it off on both sides. Then cut off the head and tail, remove the insides. If the perch is small, it is better to freeze it for 20 minutes in the freezer before cutting it – the frozen skin is easier to clean.

A large perch with hard scales can be cleaned with a drill: fix the drill, turn it on at low speed, draw along the drill, lightly touching the scales.
