Fish Fillets – Finding Worms and Parasites

Fish Fillets

Does my fish have Worms and Parasites

There seems to be some concern about worms and parasites in some of the types of fish I have recipes for.  This is very common, both the worms and the concern.  Most bottom feeding fish are very susceptible to the dangers of consuming such creatures that become a permanent part of there bodies.  Because it’s common you need to come to grips with dealing with this your self and understanding that you don’t need to worry so much about your fish or avoid eating them altogether.  The best thing you can do is arm your self with the simple knowledge that these things can be easily found and removed.  It is done so, everyday, in the fishing industry and restaurants world wide.

Checking the Fish filet’s

I’ve prepared a simple tutorial to show you how to do this your self in your own home.  And if by chance you question this method, DON’T!  I learned this personally when I worked as a young man in the fishing industry in Alaska.  This is the way it’s done, only on a much larger scale.  So the only difference is, I show you how to do it using what you have.  The only other way I know of is to buy farm raised fish. But the problem with that is it’s not available everywhere and what is available most likely isn’t the fish you’re looking for.  But also realize even fruit and veggies can have worms. Just remember that knowledge is power, and the more you know the less there is to fear. Familiarize yourself with what to look for, then cook and eat with confidence!
