While at Costco yesterday we were looking to buy some salmon. They have farm fillets, wild fillets and to our surprise they had whole salmon for $4.99 a pound. We decided to get the whole salmon and I would fillet it myself.
This is about the biggest fish I’ve purchased and I figured I would fillet it and smoke half and save the other half for grilling etc.
This was my first time filleting a salmon and I think I did ok. Made two very nice fillets and managed to get all the ribs and pin bones out a-ok. Even manged to scrape the bones and get a cup of meat for the cats to enjoy, they went nuts over the fresh salmon bits.
