Mastering Fish Dishes

Course overview

Do you lack the knowledge and skills to tackle the filleting and preparation of whole fish?

The focus of this course is to equip you with the basic skill of filleting of fish and make you aware of the correct cooking techniques for the different varieties of fish.

You will:

  • learn how to fillet the main types of fish
  • discover how to cook different types of fish in the appropriate way
  • be introduced to a variety of fish-based starters and mains
  • gain the confidence to fillet fish correctly and cook them in a variety of ways at home


You will need to bring your own apron, oven gloves and tea towels. Please also bring along a pen, and reading glasses (if you use them), in order to read and take notes on the recipes.

It’s crucial to dress and move around appropriately within a crowded, hot kitchen environment. 

Please note that latex/nitrile gloves are not provided by the centre, therefore if you want to wear them, you will need to supply your own.

Face masks are not required.

Your tutor will be happy to discuss your progress and courses that you might want to consider. We also offer courses in Patisserie, Vegan cookery, Italian, Thai, Spanish and Indian.
