  1. Well done! I've never de-boned fish before! Did you get to use your new knives?

  2. LOL - it was not fun, the original video I used had me use tweezers to remove each bone, I will definitely use the other method next time! But now that I have legit knives, I have been going crazy cooking, I don't know why I didn't upgrade sooner!
