You will need
  • A large bucket or deep basin
  • Cold water
  • Peeler
For cleaning a small number of medium-sized fish you can eat in the kitchen. On the countertop next to the sink, set the bowl of water. The water should be cold, but at the same time comfortable temperature.
Rinse fish under running water, then completely immerse in a container of water.
Start to clean the fish with a vegetable peeler directly under the water in the direction from the tail, holding it with one hand. So the whole scale will remain under water and will not spread.
