How to Debone Cooked Rainbow Trout

Taking the bones out of a rainbow trout will likely be one of the easiest things you've ever done. If the fish is cooked properly, the bones will lift right out. In fact, a good way to know if you have fully cooked the fish is by attempting to pull out a bone. Be careful though, because tiny, transparent bones may still be in the meat even after you think you have pulled them all out.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Grab the fish by the tail.

  2. 2

    Pull the tail away from the back and toward the head of the fish.

  3. 3

    The head should come off along with the skeleton. Toss the bones in the garbage.

  4. 4

    Open fish so that each side is flat.

  5. 5

    With your fingers, pull out any remaining tiny bones you see.
