What to do with your whole fish

Member, Chris Wellman, demonstrating the filleting skills he learned at one of our filleting demos, summer 2009

If you receive whole fresh fish not frozen, you have a lot of options.  You can fillet your fish,  cut it into steaks, cook it whole, can it, and/ or freeze it.

If you receive whole frozen fish, you can thaw and cook a whole fish or, you can use a saw to cut it into steaks which can be kept in the freezer and thawed as needed.  Many butchers will cut your frozen fish at the end of the day before they dispose of the blade since a blade used to cut fish can’t be used for anything else.

Here are some of our favourite recipe ideas for cooking your fish.
