Default This is how I prefer, a boneless Flounder, ready for stuffing

I like to clean them like the first video when I have a bunch to clean because it's quick and easy. If I have a nice one that I want to make stuffed flounder with, I do it similar to the first video however rather than make the cut down the center I take the head off then run my knife down the bones and take one filet from each side rather than two. Makes it fold over just right for crab stuffed flounder.

I prefer that first video myself. It's how I fillet a flounder.

I didn't look at the video but a slit down the center and slide the knife under one side at a time and when finished you will see thru the bones.

I have tried it a couple of times and cant seem to get the feel for it quite yet. Its those outer row of bones that mess me up.
