Fish: The Complete Guide to Buying and Cookingby Mark Bittman, Dennis M. Gottlieb (Photographer)
Fish, the most comprehensive book produced on the subject in more than 31 years, is the one resource cooks need to be able to enjoy all types of seafood Organized in all easy-reference A-to-Z format, the book details 70 kinds of fish and shellfish, describing how to buy, store, prepare and cook fish, whether sauteing, frying, grilling, or smoking. It also includes up-to-the-minute information on the health benefits of fish in our diet.
The more than 500 recipes in Fish use low-fat, high-flavor ingredients to accent the intrinsic natures of the individual fish rather than mask them. And the vast majority of the recipes are ready in less than thirty minutes.
