Okay, I’ve bought small Seer fish today and he is going to slice it now. Usually, when we cut it straight, you’ll get small round pieces from small seer fish unlike big seer fish. But we can make big slices out of this by cutting it slant. Watch this! This is a fresh fish. You’ll get big slices by cutting this way If we cut straight, we will get only small round pieces. I want small pieces for curry and lengthy pieces for fry. I’ll cut tail side for curry pieces and I’ll make big slices for fry. By cutting this way, one could easily make big slices out of small fishes. Same fish can be cut in 2 different ways – one for curry and one for fry. Use these small tail pieces for curry Bombay Fish Stall Q: Thanks for explaining so well. What’s your name? Azad. And, this is Bombay Fish Stall. Q: Your name? I’m Alex. As he explained, this is lengthy piece because it was a slant cut. If you can notice bone is not in the center. This will make good looking fry pieces. Before Cooking After Cooking
