Aside from spewing profanities and making delicious food, Gordon Ramsay is damn good at filleting a fish. So good, in fact, that he challenged halibut expert Janna Fabich to a competition on his newest and most appropriately-titled series, The F Word. 

As a way to up the ante, Ramsay also invited officials from the Guinness World Records to oversee their intense breaking and prepping process. The number to beat: 15 portions of halibut (weighing at 40 grams or more). The time to beat: two minutes or less. The result: Ramsay for the win (Obviously. There’s a reason why he’s allowed to verbally assault his contestants on Hell’s Kitchen.)

With a minute and five seconds to spare, the new record holder chopped and sliced through the challenge at lightning speed. (Fabich clocked in at 13 pieces in two minutes, in case you’re interested.)

Check out the clip below to see Ramsay in action. And if you’re now craving fish for dinner, we’ve gathered three of our favorite halibut recipes. But please butcher with caution.
