Do you need to know how to use a knife to clean fish? If so, read on. You’ll need a fillet knife, a cutting board that’s the length of the fish at least, and a bowl of cold water. Dull knives are more dangerous than sharp knives, so choose your knife accordingly and make sure you’re keeping your fingers safe when carrying out the activity.
Steps to take to safely use a knife to clean fish
Are you ready to use a knife to clean fish? Firstly, separate the spine from the fillet, laying the fish on its side. You then need to separate the spine and the rib cage from the fillet and the stomach from the fillet. The next step is to separate the fillet from the skin and repeat all the steps to separate the second fillet from the fish. If you are camping whilst cleaning your fish, follow camping regulations when getting rid of the remains. If you don’t take this step, you could attract wild animals who can injure and even kill humans.
