Cleaning Fish - How To Fillet Fish

Knowing what to do after you catch a fish is more important than any fish cleaning tips, or fish cleaning tool, because nothing has a greater impact on the resulting quality of the fillets.

We suggest reading the "After you catch a fish" section before you go fishing. Cleaning cooking fish is not difficult and well looked after fish are a pleasure to clean, and very tasty to eat.

This tutorial features a sequence of 28 large pics and clear instructions for every stage of the cleaning process from catching to the table.

Find out how it's done, the best fish filleting tool and all about fish cleaning stands.


After You Catch A Fish   Fillet Fish Cleaning Part 1

The first step in cleaning fish is the fish care given between catching the fish and the fish cleaning table. Learn to use "Iky Jime" a Japanese style fish cleaning tool.

Find out how to fillet a fish and get the second fillet off as easily as the first. PFK shows how it's done - a simple solution to an old problem!

Filleting fish doesn't get easier than this. The first side has been half removed and left in place to support the second side. Photos by fishing guru Geoff Thomas

The second side is completely removed, the fish flipped back on the first side for the last cut. This way of filleting a fish was certainly easier!

How To Skin A Fish Fillet   De Boning Fish Fillets

Fish skins can be removed without risk of cutting the fish skin by holding the knife still and moving the fillet from side to side instead of the knife.

Many consider the hardest part of fish cleaning deboning the fillet. The fish back bones are removed in the filleting stage. The remaining fish bones are easy to remove.
