About the event

Join us for the final Trish Talks Fish skills workshop of the summer!

First time at the cutting table? No Problem, we've got you!

This 2-hour class will teach you the knowledge and skills to fillet a whole fresh salmon like a dockside pro.

Best part? You get to take home a whole side of your own fresh filleted wild BC sockeye to feed your fam and friends (or keep for yourself, we’re not judging 😉)

Get ready to roll up your sleeves (literally) and dive in!



  • When to catch the best in-season sales
  • How much $$ you’ll save buying whole
  • Real talk on Fresh vs. Frozen


  • Setup and cleanliness
  • Knife handling and safety
  • Basic fish anatomy
  • Step by step breakdown demo of a salmon
  • Filleting, Portioning and Storing your fish

  • Trim and split the extras evenly to use for future dishes at home
