Filleting a Salmon

Aside from fabricating flat fish (see Halibut), I’m also working with round fish like this lovely Ora King Salmon.  Look at the beautiful color of the flesh…a bright orange and white!  One thing I’ve learned is: salmon’s flesh is particularly delicate, so it is rather unforgiving if you don’t cut with confidence.  Always have a wicked sharp knife!

Oh, and by the way, the last photo is what the salmon looks like when you order it for dinner.  You’re welcome.
