How To Butterfly Fillet Mackerel

How To Butterfly Fillet Mackerel

Filleting Instructions

Make a small incision at the back of the head

With the tip of your knife on top of the ribs make a cut from head to tail about half way into the fish

Using the spine as a guide make a second cut to release the first half of the butterfly fillet

Turn the fish over and lay down with the first side of the butterfly open

In one cut from head to tail release the second side of the butterfly

Separate the frame from the flesh to leave you with a butterflied mackerel fillet
