How to Clean a Fish (According to Me)
You will need:
1 recently deceased fish
1 pair of old rubber gloves
1 tub of warm water
1 scrub brush
1 to 2 tablespoons of Palmolive dish detergent
1 old towel
Put on rubber gloves before handling the fish to prevent “fishy” smells from permeating your skin. Place fish in water. Add detergent and scrub the fish with the scrub brush for 5 – 10 minutes, making sure to get under the gills. Try to avoid the eyes as scrubbing this area can cause an upset stomach (for you, not the fish).
Dry the fish with the old towel.
(Instructions for how to clean a moose can be requested by email. I will not post them as it is a very long and somewhat embarrassing process.)
Upcoming blogs will include “How to Dress a Turkey” and “How to Stuff a Pig”. If you are interested in pre –blog preparations for either, I suggest purchasing some tiny, old clothing, a live turkey, a live pig, loads of food the pig might like to eat, a hockey mask, a suit of armour and some iodine or peroxide.
