Don’t know what to do with a whole fish? Fear not! Chef Evan Mallett of Black Trumpet Restaurant in Portsmouth, NH shows you how to fillet a fish cleanly, simply, and safely. You’ll learn how you can use the whole fish (think stock!) and why buying whole fish is a great option for you, the fish harvester, and the fish (waste nothing!). Evan will also show us a couple of ways to prepare New England groundfish.
