Wooden Prep Step Nuki Ita
The wooden prep geta nuki ita board is used during preparation to arrange dishes before serving. It was originally designed to pull grilled or fried foods from skewers, but is now frequently used as a convinient tool at sushi bars. The Z shaped construction creates an incline to help to drain excess moisture from ingredients. This style of board is especially popular for when preparing fish by pouring boiling water over the skin of the fish then cooled with cold water.
