Filleting Salmon


Recommended Posts

Surely im not the only person to catch a nice salmon, and take it home for lunch. Then go through the precise method to clean and fillet the fish, remove any and all red meat and skin, then stand back and look at the fillets compared to the waste, and think 'really? thats all?' I weighed today's fish, and a 3kg fish only produces <1kg of white meat! Always a bit of a shock/disappointment

When I fillet them for fish cakes my pug is generally at my side. The only parts wasted are the head, spine/bones and skin. All of red meat gets trimmed and fed straight to the pug. He loves it to no end. In fact when I go to give him a slice of the white meat he turns his nose up at it... he only wants the red meat from it.
