Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    To dice an avocado in its skin, cut in half and remove pit. Use paring knife to carefully cut a crosshatch pattern in the flesh of each half, then use a large spoon to scoop the flesh from the skin.
  • Tip 2
    For best results when grilling fish, place fillets at a 45-degree angle to the grates of the rack so spatula slides easily underneath them. If the fillets are in line with the grates, the spatula will slide the fillet down the grates. If the fillets are perpendicular to the grates, the spatula will slide underneath them.
