I have to agree. Too dangerous to serve something that can potentially kill someone. Should the bone make it down the throat, it can pierce the intestinal track and create peritonitis poisoning. And they won't discover the cause until they perform the autopsy.

Thank you everyone.I went with the feel and pull with needle nosed pliers technique. Didn't miss one bone. Yeah me..

I had bought at the time 2 large 4Lb fillets. While cleaning them up trimming off the excess ugly fat,-off sides pieces. I went ahead and cut them into individual steak pieces.

Everyone around here has been sick for a week so I was in a hurry to get that taken care of and frozen before it went bad. I was down 3 days.

Were like some here when it comes to the bones. It's not acceptable at a restruant to bite into a piece and choke on the bones. You shouldn't have to pick out the bones. Not with the prices they charge for it anyways. Cooking it at home bone in doesn't do anything to enhance the flavor. In my house the only thing it would enhance is a complaint. Who's going to hear that? ME!

You were right Andy, it was a little work because it was steak cut.


If your with me that's great. If not. Get out of my way.

Munky, a filet is a piece of salmon all from one side of the fish. A salmon steak is a cut across the length of the fish with some of the filet from both sides and a section of the backbone.

What you did was to portion the filet into servings.

Here is a picture of a steak. You can see the backbone in the middle.
