Cleaning a Fish - How To Fillet Fish Part 2

This is a follow on from
Filleting A Fish Part 1

We have split the "how to fillet a fish" section into three parts because we felt it was more important to have big clear pictures showing how to fillet a fish rather than a single page with many small pictures.

We have has just turned the fish over after losening the first fillet and repeated the first cuts he made behind the fish head on the other side and near the dorsal fin.

Pic Below: Now repeat the second cut near the dorsal fin with the fillet knife angled slightly downwards.

Reverse the direction of the filleting knife and follow the bones by "feeling them" with the filet knife until the fishes backbone is reached

How to Filet a Fish Pic

Peel the fillet back and cut around the backbone and through the small lateral bones. Run the fillet knife right through to the skin on the underside of the fish.

Fileting Fish Picture

Cut over the belly flap either through or over the belly bones, we have easily cut through them here with his razor sharp Victorinox filleting knife.

Cut any remaining attached sinew or skin. Next : Fillet A Fish Part 3

Tips For Filleting Saltwater Fish

When filleting saltwater fish the taste is improved immensely if the fillets are washed in seawater. A very sharp knife, frequently honed, will help maintain the delicate texture.
