FAQs about whole perch

A good rule to follow is to cook your whole fish until the interior temperature is at a minimum between 140-145 degrees. You can also test its texture with a fork by twisting it at an angle. It should twist gently. Fish will also lose its translucent coloring when fully cooked. Maintain the flavor of your whole perch by checking its doneness often and removing it as soon as it meets these requirements.

You don't have to remove the skin on whole perch. Doing so is a preference, and many people enjoy the taste of the skin. Removing it, however, does expose more of the delicate texture. Whole perch usually comes as a thin piece of meat that does not require any prep before cooking. You might also decide to remove the whole perch skin and then cut the fish into smaller fillets for easier preparation or as an appetizer.
