How to fillet a fish | Buddy Oliver | 3 of 5 #KitchenBuddies


Hi guys, I’m buddy Oliver and today I’m
gonna show you how to fillet a fish This is the beautiful mackerel and I’m
going to show you how to take the fillets off. First thing we need to do is
clean the mackerel, we’ve taken the guts out of this mackerel so it’s nice and clean
inside. Most people think that filleting fish is scary, but my Dad taught me a way
to make it really easy. What you need to do is to be prepared, I’ve got a tray to
put in my finished fillet I’ve got a bowl to put in all of my
bad bits, I’ve got these pliers to take the bones out, this is a knife sharpener
and this is a bendy knife to go around all the bones. This is quite tricky but I
practice loads of time so you should probably do it with an adult. First thing
you want to do is good your knife a quick sharpen, then we’re going to cut the
off. We’re gonna to go behind the fin and cut through and place this here.
This is a spine, you’re going to cut down either side of it and you’re gonna stop at about this line.
You’re gonna clean your knife and be really careful when you’re moving your
fish around. The anus is here… The anus is here, we’re going to cut through to it
and then when you’ve got it, in you’re gonna bend your knife and cut down, then,
with your blade, you’re gonna use the middle of your knife and do gentle
strokes to cut your face off Be very gentle with this part and there
we have one fillet and we haven’t got too much waste on their, only a little
bit. Now we will tidy up the fillet We’re gonna pop our fish here, we’re
gonna tidy up the tail, we’re gonna get the end of the fillet here and use the
tip of your knife and put two fingers on top of it and really hardly take that
off, if it doesn’t work try and follow your line and do that Now we’re gonna gently put our fillet
in the middle of the board, get a cloth and have a wipe down. So now we
need these pliers take the bones out, you can use pliers from your Dad’s shed, but
give them a good clean. We’re gonna run our finger down the middle of the fillet
and we’re gonna use our pliers to pull the bone out. My sister doesn’t like the
bones, so I’m gonna take all of them out. As you get closer to the tail you
won’t have many bones There you go last one, now we’re gonna
turn our fillet over then you’re gonna get rid of these bones. We’re going to use
our cloth to get rid of the bones We’re going to pinch the fish and we’re
going to put some lines in it Be really gentle, you don’t want to do
it too deep. We’re doing it so we can put seasoning and herbs, it’ll cook faster
and yeah that’s what they’re for. I’m gonna let the knife do all the work and
that’s my first fillet. Now we’re going to crack on with the other side Haven’t done much waste there, we’re
gonna pop it in the middle of our pan. Now you’re gonna clean up our fish. Take our
tail off, now we’re going to take the bones out. There we go, last bone out and
there we go, that’s my filleted mackerel So it’s a bit tricky, but give it a go
and don’t be scared of it. I’m gonna cook this a bit later on because my family
loved it. If you want instructions to how to do this, click the link below.
