That sablefish is dang good.  If I can swing the cost, I just may buy another 10lb box just to have.  Last night we dredged a bunch of chunks in olive oil/rub and air fried them for 15 minutes or so.  Got a nice crisp on the outside.  Dang good stuff.

I've been hemming and hawing over the Keta, but I don't have the filleting skills.  I've been processing my own game meat for 40 years, but can't fillet a fish worth beans.  I've been a little leery of getting the full fish, afraid I wouldn't do it justice and waist too much.

I felt a bit like you, so I looked at it like butchering a salmon, not filleting. A mis-cut is not a loss at all. Just like ctwiggs1 said, there's no waste. It just goes in the burger (fish cake, dip, etc.) pile. I put this together yesterday (full disclosure, with the help of my teenage daughter) to try and show what a regular Joe can do.

Oh dude itís been a life changer.  I love it.  Got it for Fatherís Day and itís used weekly at a minimum.  Our microwave died and I donít think Iím going to replace it.  Between the air fryer and the oven, we are set.

Honestly, it's just a bit of practice.  You will either leave a bit of meat on the carcass or take some bones with your filet.  Both are completely fixable, bones are trimmed like silverskin is and meat on the carcass is just like trimming bones on a big game animal.

It will be worlds better than anything you are buying at the grocery store.

FWIW I purchased some of Chrisís chum before.  Significantly better than what I imagined given the trash talking chum get.

If I had a bigger smoker, Iíd pick up a box and make some 1lb snack packs for the year.

Still tempted to buy a box just to have more fillets in the freezer.

I fillet pretty dang well in my opinion. Others would disagree with me. Either way,  I did an experiment last week with a full king. Probably a 15# carcass. I filleted it and then smoked the carcass. Between collars and meat left on carcass I had 12 oz of smoked fish. I scraped it all off the carcass and made a dip. Zero waste.
