How to Fillet a Fish
It’s video time again at Chew on That! This time we’re showing you how to fillet a fish (yes it is spelled with two Ls)! If you’ve ever wondered how the grocery stores strip those whole fish down to gorgeous fillets for your cooking convenience, then this video is for you!
Jorge Ledezma of Whole Foods was kind enough to demonstrate the process from scaling to avoiding those poisonous fins of the yellowtail snapper! So turn up your volume and watch away – it’ll be fun. I even get a fish scale in my hair!
Special thanks to Meg Bowman of Whole Foods for all of her help. And thanks again to Jorge who is not only fantastic at filleting fish, but also plays in an awesome band called Alla. They’re releasing a CD called Es Tiempo in May of 2008 so check it out (you can listen to their music here).
