Used to do it when pro salmon fishing straight out of the water and on to a hot plate, no gutting or scaling.
The gut shrivels up and the scales flake off once they are cooked.

At home, fillets done in butter in the frypan, no extras to destroy the taste

 They're great pan fried in a bit of olive oil and butter with salt and pepper, but you can throw in some sliced garlic and chili for something a little different. Another good one is a pinch of tumeric (too much will be bitter) and chili powder in a little salt and pepper seasoned flour, dust fillets or whole fish and pan fry.

Hezza are one of my favourite fish to eat.

Lightly flour and into an egg wash with a dash of milk and a blob of mayo (nanna's trick for those who don't like the stronger taste) then into bread crumbs with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and dried dill and into hot oil and about a minute either side and fresh lemon on top.

The trick is to bleed them straight away and we do this by putting the thumb on top of the head and a finger in each gill and snapping their heads back till they squirt blood.
