How you gut a snapper

We saw last week John Key gut John Campbell over snapper vs the GCSB.

Yesterday in parliament it was the same two topics and this time it was David Shearer who was gutted like a snapper.

All done without a knife as well.

So we have seen John Key gut politicians without a knife, but how do you gut snapper without a knife?

Of course after gutting a snapper you need to know how to fillet a snapper…not sure an Aussie is going to know much about it but here goes.

    Noddy Norman would be sick if he had too do that. Good video.

    The guts are all I tend to throw out, and then normally before I head home. The rest make a great base for a good stock or even for the smoker for an excellent fish pie.

    The Aussies use to make me crack up when they caught a fish they would scale it then when they would fillet it then they would throw the skin away. When I asked why they took the scales off then tossed the skin away they would give me a blank look. I have cured many Aussie fisherman from scaling fish.

      More to the point, why the hell would you bother gutting it if you’re going to take the fillets off? Completely pointless and makes it harder to fillet. Only bother gutting it if I’m going to bake it whole, in which case of course you scale it before gutting.

    The real question is how long does it take to “gut” a Shearer – plenty of knives being sharpened after yesterdays debacle(s)
