  4. To cut herring, you need to use a cutting board and a sharp knife.
  5. With one hand we hold the herring by the back, and with the second we make a longitudinal incision in the middle of the abdomen.
  6. There may be milk or caviar inside the abdomen; if you consume it, it may not be thrown away.

  10. We make a cut on the back with a knife and carefully remove the skin.
