Gutting Fish
Author: U0C9NBkEb48
Gutting a fish is one of those things that you either know how to do, or you don’t. Once someone has shown you how, you realise how easy it is.
  • A fish!
  1. Remove the scales from the fish using a knife.
  2. Cut off the fins with a good strong pair of scissors.
  3. Remove the gills using a sharp knife or pair of scissors.
  4. Slit the underside of the fish from the fish’s anus to the front gills. Scoop out the innards. Cut away the digestive tract from the head with a pair of scissors.
  5. Wash & dry the fish inside and out.
