Unfortunately, there is no one single way to do it.
When you fillet a fish for sushi you must be even more careful than what you normally see at a fishmonger. The reason for this is that if a fish is filleted sloppy you can actually taste it when you use it later for Nigiri.
There is a big difference in how a fish is filleted, depending on if it is a flatfish, white fish, salmon, tuna or very small fish. The skin of a fish does also have an impact on how to filet a fish.
If you do not know to fillet a fish you can always ask the fishmonger if he will do all the hard work first. It is important to remember only to purchase fish suitable for sushi.
