Carving Fish

To carve a baked or boiled fish, a silver knife and fork should be used. The head of the fish should first be removed and then the length of the back cut down as close as possible to the bone, the nearer half of the fish being cut in thick slices. When all the flesh is removed from one side, the platter or the fish should be turned and the flesh removed from the other side.
