great snapper , nice big fillet there , isnt that a weird way of filleting it? IMO i think  cutting around the edges and slicing or peeling the skin of, then taking the fillet completly of the bone is much more effective and minimal waste. or did you scale your fish ? Not a personal attack or anything just curious as to how you fillet your fish mate. cheers

Are you saying you skin the fish before the fillet is off the frame of the fish?  Remove complete fillet and then skin has always been my approach.

Um remove the skin because of the scales , thats fine everyone has there own ways but my way is very effective , i slice around the edges and i can basically peel the skin of and sometimes just having to knick the skin with my knife ,then i just slice the fillet of and ta da no fish scale mess or anything. i find taking the entire fillet of then removing skin is a pain in the arse for bigger fish .

Get your knife and scrape

Get your knife and scrape all the scales off. cut a fillet. slap onto the bbq when cooked skin peels off so easily.

screw that man , i dont need to scale my fish at all  the way i have been shown to do it by old professional fisherman is to peel the skin of with larger fish , why would you want to scale or try de skin a 3ft / 2ft fillet ( length wise) , do it while its on the fish saves so much energy and hassle and mess  , with smaller fish yes that is alot faster but not with larger fish.

Peeling the skin off

Mon, 2010-07-26 19:02

I take this is done in the most part without a knife?  I've seen Red Gurnard and Leatherjackets prepared by peeling the skin off rather than skinning with a knife, but no others.  When you say larger fish, what species are you referring to?

i gut, degill and scale it

Sat, 2010-07-24 21:55

i gut, degill and scale it first. cut behind the head and fillet it through. leave the skin on, cook it like that. i personally love the taste of the skin of the fish. draws in flavours when you cook it with herbs and spices etc. each to their own though!

Thanks all for the comments. Definately find it better to keep the skin on whilst filleting and once you have the fillet its easy as piss to get the skin off. I do agree sometimes cooking with the skin on as can give the fish a better flavour but meh rather eat it without the skin! So fillet and skin then theres no need to scale, gut etc! EASY!!
