John Dory halfway through filleting by Anthony J Sargeant as mentioned in the last post. First make a cut as close to the spines as possible all the way round the fish taking care not to impale your fingers on the spines then using the flexible filleting knife take it down against the bones until reaching the back bone. Then carefully follow the curve of the backbone round and downwards until the bones underneath are found and filleting can continue using that as a guide for the knife. Thus fillets can be removed as a single pieces – one from each side. See next post.
