Fish Butchery

Do you avoid whole fish because you’re not sure how to treat them? Did you know you can make four meals from the same fish? Don’t know what to do with a fish once you catch it?

In Borough Market, we have access to some of the freshest fish in Britain.  Get over any fear or uncertainty you have in this fish butchery class, where you will work with Mimo chefs to break down a whole fish into usable parts.  Work with both round and flat fish, learning the techniques for each, as well as the do’s and don’t’s when handling fish in the kitchen. Our chefs will review the best cooking methods for each cut, giving you the confidence to cook fish at home any night of the week.

In this class you will:

    Learn the different terms for pieces of fish
    Watch and practice filleting a fish
    Learn how to break down a fish from whole to filleted
    Understand how to properly handle and safely store fish

Our Skills classes are perfect when you’re pressed for time or for foodies who want to deepen their knowledge in a certain area. These classes are deep dives into very specific topics and skills. Sign up for the chance to gain a more profound knowledge and learn new techniques that you can take home with you.
