    Default Someone call a doctor

    Hey FishNPhysician...

    With the season on us, I wouldn't mind seeing those filet photos again. There are enough new people around to merrit a rerun.

    And while the technique really shines for BIG fish, don't discount it for smaller salmon. It will really help to get maximum meat yield from a salmon carcass, especially for folks who don't get out a lot to "whack and stack" a ton of sockeye and/or coho all summer.

    Here's a similar demo of the same technique done on a vac-packed headless/gutless sockeye:

    Excellent.

    Years, and years, and years of fileting salmon for me... but, given my usage and the clarity of your ribs, I am going to say the same thing I said last year.... I am not going to go into a knife war with a doctor.

    Last year, due to time restraints, I was unable to practice your technique and fell into old habits for speed. But, I was impressed enough to want a revisit for my mind's sake, and for anyone new to this site.

    It actually reminds me of a whale butchering. Slabs of meat.

    This year, I will gain from this.

    As a post script... my original legitimate name on the internet was Keeneye.

    Default Hey MD!

    Is that just a standard surgical towel underneath the salmon to keep it from slipping? I was thinking of using a cat mat with more nubbies than a carpet runner...maybe I'll just rethink that.

    Default Jeez Louise......

    Doctor,

    If you every get tired of that high pressure medical racket and want a nice relaxing job as a prep cook, let me know. I've never seen such a clean carcass. To heck with salmon burgers....

    Yep, the ubiquitous "blue rag"... they have many uses beyond the O.R.
