how to fillet a fish (a video)

It's Wednesday. And that means it's time for another Chef video.

This week's video is how to fillet a whole fish. I must admit that I have never done this by myself. The idea daunted me. But after filming the Chef doing this — and making him go much more slowly than he has in decades — I feel confident I can fillet a fish now.

So will you.

Just two notes.

1. The natural sound effects of this might bother those of you who choose not to eat meat or fish. Sorry about that. There's no other way around it. This is real.

2. We are still learning the mechanics of this tiny camera. We love it. But in shooting and editing this video, I have realized it is definitely not ready for its close-up. Sorry about the fuzzy focus on the pinbones. But you'll get the idea.

And now, away we go.....

Cool video - I've had a go at filleting fish before, but never thought to pick out the bones.

Just one thing - the picture and sound got steadily out of sync - don't know if it was a problem at my end or at your end, but the sound finished a good 10s before the picture.

Loving these videos. YES! They make me want to just carve up all kinds of things. You got me on a big knife sharpening extravaganza. I thought of you two the other day when deboning some chicken legs. You'd planted a seed with your carving the chicken video. I decided to get some legs and see what there was to do with them aside from plain bone in baking them. Thank you for the inspiration.

Any chance you might have a good fish soup recipe? Or a sauce recipe, like was mentioned on the video?

thank you for posting this! i've always been afraid of doing it, even though i grew up watching my grandfather rip the guts from fish like it was no big deal. i'm so glad you and the chef did it.

He's so much fun to watch. Thanks for putting that up. It's very helpful. I see a Food Network show in your future. Down home with Shauna and Danny and Little Bean ;)

Shauna and Danny - I LOVE these videos !!! Just wanted you to know that.

Thank you for this awesome video.
it all looks so clear, and so easy.

T'd be really happy if you'd show how to sharpen knives. I always feel I do that wrong.

I love the videos! I'm learning so much, and I really think I might take a crack at filleting a fish...for whatever reason, it seems so much scarier than any other butchering skill. Thanks for sharing your expertise with us!

More, more, more Video's please. It was my first time today watching all your video's so far and I am loving them I love watching The Chef cook I love your cute kitchen, I love listening to Little Bean in the background. The gravy he made was mouthwatering. Although I do not like mushrooms I would make it with homemade roasted chicken stock and some sauted onions. Next time I catch some fish while fishing I will try the Filleting. And I cant wait to cut up my own chicken. Just a idea maybe do a Risotto next time.

That was way too much fun. I just love you guys - you make such a great team! Thanks for the lesson and for getting Dr. Demento stuck in my head! AAAAAAGH! :)

Thank you! Just what I wanted!

Great video, thanks. I've had a go before but usually had more waste that Chef, I guess it just takes practise!

I also had the problem of sound and image being out of sync, but it was still fine to follow.
