Easy fillets !!

Post by Phishtech » Sun Nov 28, 2010 6:32 pm

While shopping at Walmart today and looking for a paper towel holder over in the kitchen stuff, I found one of those squeeze type containers for ketchup like you find in resturants. Looks like it holds about 8 oz. I was going to do my internal fillets today since the weather warmed up a bit, so I mixed my pookie, put it in the ketchup squeezer, and made easy fillets. Goes on just like using a caulk tube. Leaves just the right amount and the follow-up with the plastic spoon made them look almost professional. Not bad and it's less than a dollar. Cleaned up good with acetone so I can use it again.

Good idea
Oh, wen I remember all the beautifull plastic tomatopuree squeeze-bottels discarded in the wastebin. So easy to clean and reuseable for filletting.

Thanks,

Been planning on using the exact same thing in the near future. Glad to hear its not just one of my :roll: ideas. Though I was kinda hoping they would self clean being plastic an'all.
Cheers John.
