How do you debone a salmon steak?

Someone gave my some salmon.


Answer by  Vllad45 (1886)

You will need to fillet the fish so that the larger bone is in the middle. Lift this bone and generally most of the smaller bones will lift off with it. Go back with your fillet knife and "flick" out the small bones. Also, if you boil it long enough, the smallest will be edible.

Salmon is actually pretty easy but kind of time consuming. They basically have one long bone in the back and several pin bones through the body. Slice fish in half, pull the center bone and use needle-nose pliers to pull the pin bones.

Find the line of pin bones by running your finger along the top of the steak. You can then slice very closely along both sides of that line and remove a thin strip containing the bones.

You can feel the bones by running your finger along the raw flesh of the salmon from front to rear. There are approximately 12 bones and you can pull them out individually with pliers.

There are many different ways people do it. But you see the row of bones in your salmon. Well you just cut underneath them all the way through, so basically cutting a strip out that has all the bones.
