Wondering how to fillet you own #fish?
1️⃣ Put the scaled fish on a chopping board and using scissors trim off the fins by the head on each side and any fins that run along the top and the underside of the fish.
️2️⃣️ With the tip of the knife, pierce the stomach of the fish using the small hole by the tail as a guide. Run the knife from the tail to the head, cutting open the stomach. Clean out the contents of the stomach.
3️⃣ Return the fish to the chopping board and make a long cut around the head and just below the gills on both sides
then remove the head.
️4️⃣ With the tail towards you, run the knife down the spine to the tail in a gentle slicing action, working the blade between the spine and the flesh. Repeat until the fillet begins to come away.
️5️⃣ When you get to the rib bones, let the knife follow the shape of the fish and slice over the bones. Once you've removed the fillet, set it aside.
️6️⃣ Turn over the fish and repeat with the second #fillet, this time starting at the tail and working towards the head.
Good Luck! 📍144/100-144 Burwood Rd, Burwood NSW 2134
