How to fillet a round fish

As we're all about ease and convenience, you can buy prepared fish fillets from Nutritious Fish. However, if you want to practise your fish filleting skills at home, we also sell whole fish.


This helpful step-by-step video shows you how to prepare round fish like mackerel and sea bass with CJ Jackson of Billingsgate Seafood School.​

Helpful tips:

  • Use a sharp and flexible fish filleting knife, if you have one (or pick one up in our online shop)
  • Pinbone the fillet, using tweezers to pull out the sturdy bones from the centre of the fillet, or cut along either side of them and pull the whole strip of bones out (we also sell fish bone tweezers in our online shop)
