    How to butterfly fillet a whiting!

    This post has had a couple of runs over the years but nothing really came up on how to do it!

    I've filleted around 126,000,000 whiting in my life but never been able to butterfly them!

    One technique I came across was to leave the bit behind the head attached to the two side fillets and then "pull the backbone out!"

    Yeh like it would be easier to milk a mouse! I simply rip the little buggers head off!

    Anybody with the answer thanks?

    As far as I know it's just like normal filleting but you carefully work down around the ribs and leave the section below the gut in one piece - ends up looking like a butterfly on the plate. Pretty if you are into that sort of thing but time consuming.

    This is a trout but same same.

    I think I will stick to just filleting them I rekon you could do a bucket full and have drunk half a carton before old mate has even done ten.
