Have you ever spent a silly amount of time carefully pulling out tiny fish bones? Cooking blog The Kitchn suggests the easiest way to get those little bones out is by grabbing a set of needle nose pliers from your toolbox.
Chances are you don't keep your toolbox in your kitchen, but this might be a pretty good excuse to start. Start by laying the fish skin-side down and start finding the bones. Next, grab the tip of the bone with your pliers and gently pull the bone out. Repeat the process until all the bones are out. It sure beats pulling them out by hand.
