What's it called ? (fish cleaning)

6 posts in this topic

Is there a proper term for fish that have been scaled, headed and gutted? as in "do you fillet or ??? them". My dad called it "hog dressed" and I think the fish markets call it "in the round". I hate to have to go into a complete description every time someone asks.

I've heard "dressed'. Always struck me as odd tho':)

Agree with Traveler. I think "Dressed" is the term your looking for.

This isn't answering your question, but "in the round" is unprepared product, such as trappers selling their catches "in the round" or fish markets selling their products "in the round." There is still preparation left to do when something is "in the round."

I agree with the "dressed" crowd. In the round is a fish that is gutted only.

A lot of these terms mean different things in different areas though.
