fish fillet, from the French word filet  meaning a thread or strip, is the flesh of a fish which has been cut or sliced away from the bone by cutting lengthwise along one side of the fish parallel to the backbone. In preparation for filleting, any scales on the fish should be removed. The contents of the stomach also need careful detaching from the fillet.

Because fish fillets do not contain the larger bones running along the vertebrae, they are often said to be “boneless”. However, some species, such as the common carp, have smaller intramuscular bones called pins within the fillet.
