Filleting Fresh Salmon

Filleting Fresh SalmonIn our household, we prefer to fillet our own salmon/fish at home even though it is a complimentary service at most grocery stores.

Therefore depending on the level of experience the workers have, you could potentially lose out on meat and money, if they do not fillet close.

And, though I couldn't find a video on such, I was sure commercially peeled boiled eggs aren't given a cool down period.

I took an empty cardboard TP roll and covered it with inexpensive contact paper. I punched a hole in the TP holder and put it on the hook attached to my blender. Then I tucked the cord inside.
