To prepare a whole filet of tilapia, place it on the cutting board and run your knife downward along the spine of the fish. This should cut through easily, leaving you with two fillets on either side of your backbone.
 
Remove any bones or other innards from your fillet before cooking. You can easily remove the bones by pinching one end of the bone with pliers (or needle-nosed pliers), pulling outwards until all portions have been removed from both sides of each piece.
