After hauling in that big (or little) catch, if you’re planning to keep it and eat it you’ve got to have a plan to prepare it! Chef Scott Leysath walks us through just how to fillet a fish, in particular, a fresh yellow tail tuna. These general principles apply whether filleting a smaller fresh water trout or a big ol’ boy like this yellow tail.
