TIP OF THE DAY: Get A Fish Spatula (Fish Turner)
Grilling tools sets generally include a chef’s spatula, grill tongs, two-prong fork, silicone basting brush and cleaning brush for the grill. But if you grill fish, that chef’s spatula is a bit clunky to turn a fillet easily, without breaking it.
THE NIBBLE chef suggests a grilling tool that is equally wonderful in the kitchen: a good quality fish spatula or fish turner. He uses it for grilling both burgers and fish, and finds it preferable to the conventional head-on chef’s spatula.
It’s a great utensil whether you’re grilling, sautéing or broiling.
Designed to turn and lift delicate seafood, a fish spatula, also known as a fish turner, is thinner and lighter and works from an angle. The long vents mean less sticking.
A fish spatula is a multi-tasker. We use it to turn fried eggs and omelets, pancakes, crêpes, cutlets, enchiladas and quesadillas—even to lift delicate baked pasta such as lasagne and manicotti.
