How to: cut whole fish table side

I will tell you that it is much easier to clean a whole dover sole tableside standing up than sitting down.

These fish were served to Mitzi at Chalet Caraibi in Pescara, Italy. She had not cleaned a whole fish tableside. I showed her hot to clean one, she did the other perfectly. I am bummed I couldn’t find a video of her cleaning the other fish.

So, next time you have the opportunity to clean a whole fish (maybe try to cook a whole fish?) Give it a shot, you just may enjoy the experience.
