Fillet northern pike how to finish the cleaning and filleting process

  1. 1. Fillet Northern Pike: How To Finish The Cleaning And Filleting Process<br />
  2. 2. Many people will throw back northern pike simply because they think that this fish is impossible to clean properly and thoroughly. One area that causes many people problems is the area containing the Y bones. This can be difficult and is something that has caused headaches for many anglers and fish lovers alike.<br /> <br />What makes this method different than other pike filleting methods is that you actually remove the Y bones after you have finished the filleting portion of cleaning northern pike. <br /> <br />One of the things you need to remember is that a pike has a lateral line. This actually runs the length of both fillets on each fish. You need to remember this area as it will actually act like a guide to removing bones but is not something to worry about until after the pike has finished cooking.<br /> <br />This method removes the Y bones at the plate. The good thing about properly cooked northern pike is that the flesh is flaky which makes it very easy to clean off of the Y bones after cooking has been completed. Once the cooking is done and the fish has been served, simply snap the fillet along the line formed by the fish’s lateral line. When this happens it becomes easy to spot the Y bones immediately. <br />
  3. 3. You can remove them at this point using either a knife or a fork. All you do to remove the Y bones is to grab them using a fork or your fingers. You can simply pull them out of the flesh quickly, easily and cleanly. You need to make sure that you inspect the bone to make sure that it came out without breaking and if it has, you can then inspect the rest of the fillet. Simply pull out any pin bones that you encounter. <br /> <br />As you can see, using this method will allow you to clean your fish quickly, easily and completely. This makes it much easier to serve this delicious fish. Once you see how easy it is to get all of the Y bones out you will see why so many people choose this method over other cleaning methods. It is no wonder that so many people use this method over the more traditional methods of removing bones once they know this trick. <br /> <br />One of the benefits of this method is that you do not need to remember which side is which. The visual cue of the lateral line will show you exactly where those Y bones are. <br /> <br />To find more fillet northern pikeand cleaning northern pike, then simply check out this website, http://www.freshwater-fishing-canada.com.<br />
