"An opinionated, passionate, and definitive guide to catching, buying, cooking, and eating fish and shellfish--with an emphasis on making sustainable food choices--from the bestselling author of the River Cottage books. Award-winning cookbook author Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and fishing expert Nick Fisher cover everything a consumer needs to know about finding and preparing the best freshwater fish, saltwater fish, and shellfish. The authors demystify the cooking of fish, teach skills such as descaling, and examine the ecological and moral issues of fishing. The book has been thoroughly Americanized to reflect terminology and availability for a North American audience using the guidelines of the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program--ensuring that the fish recommendations are the most sustainable, ecologically sound options. With 135 recipes plus a species reference section, The River Cottage Fish Book is both a comprehensive reference and a stunning cookbook.

This is much more than a good fish cookbook. It tells you all about all stages of getting a fish and cooking it. It tells you how to kill a fish, or how to buy it, how to clean it, how to cook it, what to do with the leftovers.

The book is in three parts - Understanding fish (how fish live, sustainability issues, how to buy a fish, basic fish skills), Fish cookery (raw fish, smoked, barbecued, baked, soups, frying, cold fish, and fish thrift and standbys), and British fish (a complete list of all fish that swim around Great Britain).

These guys love fish, and it shows everywhere. They love cooking and eating fish. They are willing to go to great lengths occasionally (not just catching your own fish, but also building your own smoker, etc.) but they are also comfortable with really simple recipes - even a few with canned fish. All the recipes are there to let the fish shine, not to let the cook show off. They also feel they have a large responsibility towards fish, and they will educate you, and you will probably enjoy that too.

If you love fish, you need this book. ( )
