Position the knife blade on a line running from just behind the knot around the top spine to just behind the anus. Cut straight down to the spine, turn the knife and run it along the spine to the tail. Flip the boneless fillet over and fillet off the skin. It’s so much faster and easier you won’t believe it till you try it.User Interaction Count:
Can you eat catfish with the skin on?
Cooking: Catfish’s white flesh remains fairly firm and does not flake apart with moderate cooking, so it’s a good fish for soups and stews. Catfish fillets can be pan fried “skin-on” but the skin does shrink a bit and you may wish to score it lengthwise to prevent curling.
Do catfish fillets have bones in them?
The answer to this question is YES, catfish do have bones! A “main” bone (similar to spine) and smaller bones (similar to ribs). These bones are large and orderly. There are numerous catfish species and they all have some anatomical differences but the bone structure of all is quite similar.
