This iconic scene is a very familiar sight at the end of the day when Newfoundland fishermen ‘land’ their catch. Filleting cod is a labour intensive art which takes speed and skill! For those who are not familiar, it refers to a process of cutting across the fish at an angle, below the gill flap and fin to the belly. You then make a cut from behind the head along the top of the dorsal fin to the tail and then skim the knife over the bones to remove the fillet (meat) from the fish. Many Newfoundlanders fillet their cod in preparation for a traditional fish fry, whether is it for a meal of fish and chips or pan fried cod! It is YUMMY! This was a custom 20×24 acrylic painting.
