To scale a fish means to scrape off the scales, a job that poses no problem for this tool worthy of a professional's kitchen!
Its fluted edge and its shape are specially designed to grab the scales, lift them and remove them without damaging the fish's skin. To make it easier, scale the fish before gutting it.
- hold onto the fish by the tail
- scrape off the scales with the scaler
- turn the fish over to scale the other side
- rinse the fish after this process.
