    Start the fillets skin side down in a cold oiled pan allows the interior to start cooking through gently; then, when the pan is fully hot, flip the fillets so that a crust can form on the flesh side and the fish can finish cooking through, about 10 minutes for a 1-inch thick fillet. Remove the skin.
