More than just a cookbook, this extensive volume provides a complete understanding of fish, from their natural habitats and life cycles to what sauce they go best with. An extensive introductory section explains the various options for procuring good fish and provides information on fish farming, aquaculture, issues involving sustainability and harvesting, and buying and catching fish in an ethical manner. Every manner of fish cooking is covered as well, including pickling, salting, barbecuing, frying, potting, stewing, smoking, and more, with each technique accompanied by a classic recipe, among them sashimi and battered cod. This is a complete guide to fish designed for amateur cooks, seafood lovers, and adherents of the slow food movement alike.

Review:

"Hugh is the person to go to for a properly informed and insightful read on almost any food subject. This fish book is no exception. It is illuminating, original, and utterly delicious, offering a solid background on the matter, including basic techniques and an abundance of original recipes."
--Yotam Ottolenghi, author of "Plenty"

"Fearnley-Whittingstall and Fisher's comprehensive instructions on the mechanics of cleaning and preparing fish are worth the price of the book alone, but their fondness for typically unloved species of fish--mackerel, sea robins, sand dabs, and the like--makes this an indispensible book for any serious piscivore."
--Hank Shaw, author of "Hunt Gather Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast"
