Fish is a popular non-veg ingredient at my place. In fact, my mom is an expert at making fish curry and believe me haven't tasted better curry ever, not even in the best of restaurants. Cleaning fish is also something that she does with so much ease. However, when I got married and decided to cook fish for the first time, thought it was easy having watched mom doing it for so many years. I have got used to her style of cooking fish without the skin and just can't eat fish with the skin on. I guess it is good for health reasons as well. Eliminate all the extra fat in one go and what you have is yummy healthy fish.
Believe me, it just wasn't easy learning how to take off the skin. But over the years yes, I can do it quick and easy (but definitely still not as well as my mom does it).
I found this video on how to make fish fillet and also de-skin fish on a site and thought it would be of help to many of the beginners. Liked the step by step manner in which they have explained it here and it is done with so much ease. I am sure going to make the fillet at home next time on.

There is a good news that got me thrilled recently(no its not what you are thinking of...no such thing). It is that my blog got chosen on "foodie blogroll" for the 3-Months Milestone Members reward badge and is currently on display on their home page. Excited I was indeed to read the mail that came in and yes, my prize has been shipped I was told.
