If you buy a plank of fish that contains pin bones, grab a bowl and pliers. Turn the bowl upside down and drape the piece of fish over the bowl. The shape of the bowl will make it easier to remove the bones.

You can use a pair of scissors to cut off the ends, or you can cut them off with a sharp knife. If you’re using a knife, make sure the blade is sharp enough to slice through the bone. Be careful not to get the knife too close to the skin, as this can cause a lot of damage.

Make sure the bones are submerged. Put a lid on it and let it sit for 24 hours. If you are happy with the whiteness of your bones, rinse them with water and dry.
