Since June is NATIONAL SEAFOOD MONTH, it’s the perfect opportunity to hone your filleting skills

When presented with a whole fish, this is the best plan of attack:

* When the head of the fish is not detached, remove it from behind the gills.

* To Fillet: Hold the fish with a fork and slit from the head to the tail with a knife; then flip open the fish so it lays flat.

* To remove the bones: place the tip of the knife under the backbone, lift it with a fork and place it on the side of the plate.

* Should you ingest any of the “pin” bones…just remove them with your fingers and put them on the side of your plate.

You are now a fish filleting expert!
