How do you dice your chinook
« on: July 08, 2009, 10:00:00 AM »

Just wanted to see how other anglers dice up there springs . Myself , I like to fillet the fish , debone it , then cut the fillet right down the center of the fillet then cut every 3 inches . I end up with quite a few nice big square pieces . Before  vacuum sealing , I take a time out to check on the chunks on the BBQ  ;D .

 I do it pretty much the same way..... I'm to lazy to take the pin bones out though. ;)

I either do it the same as you...

Or I cut steaks (perpendicular to the spine)about 1 1/2 " thick.  I then debone it as best I can, leaving the skin on.  I then tie the steaks with butchers cotton, tucking the "legs" of the steak in so I get a boneless round puck of meat with the skin on.  These are then frozen.  I do them this way specifically for poaching.  It's a bit more effort but it is very worth it.
