How to fillet fish: useful tips

  • It is very important to use a sharp knife so as not to tear the meat.
  • Try to clean all the scales when it is wet.
  • You can make two transverse cuts on the nape of the fish, one on each side. Then mark the tail, also on both sides.
  • Insert the knife into the nape of the neck until you feel the central spine, and slide down to the tail. This is how you will get the first tenderloin.
  • Make sure there are no spines by cleaning with tweezers.
  • Do not forget to order the fish without entrails so that it is much easier to clean and prepare it completely.
  • If you are going to fry it, the best oil is canola for its resistance to heat.
  • Don’t forget to season it before frying (about 5 minutes on each side).
