Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With a literal ocean of options for seafood, Hunt looks to make choosing and cooking fish as easy as possible. With sections on each of the major kinds of fish, including bivalves, crustaceans, and also "sometimes forgotten seafood," all aspects of preparing a pescetarian feast are covered. Each variety receives the hook-to-plate treatment, from buying seafood in the market and proper storage techniques to cleaning, cooking, and preparation. For anyone interested in finding a healthy alternative to red meat, this book is a helpful resource. With classic dishes like "Beer-Battered Cod" and "Mussels Pro-vencal," and more adventurous dishes like "Octopus, Crushed Tomatoes, and Kalamatas over Pap-pardelle" and "Malaysian Fish Soup" there is something for everyone. Unfortunately, lacking photo-graphs, some of the more intricate instructions become too technical for easy comprehension. A few choice photos would have made the cleaning and cooking of certain fish more approachable. It's a frustrating flaw in this otherwise fine guidebook for learning to deal with a cornucopia of seafood. (May)

“For anyone interested in finding a healthy alternative to red meat, this book is a helpful resource. With classic dishes like "Beer-Battered Cod" and "Mussels Pro-vencal," and more adventurous dishes like "Octopus, Crushed Tomatoes, and Kalamatas over Pap-pardelle" and "Malaysian Fish Soup" there is something for everyone. [A] fine guidebook for learning to deal with a cornucopia of seafood.”

Francine Segan, author of Dolci: Italy’s Sweets and Opera Lover’s Cookbook
“Destined to become a classic, Fish Market is the only seafood cookbook you’ll ever need! Deftly written, with clear, easy-to-follow directions. Perfectly spiced with helpful hints, Kathy's splendid book both demystifies and inspires. Enticing recipes, from simple to sublime, are perfect for both experienced gourmets who would like to discover new types of fish and novice cooks wanting to eat less meat.”

Louisa Kasdon, The Phoenix Magazine
“I love this book! It takes the grim out of the seafood and sustainability conversation and replaces it with joy. Love the fish-by-fish recipes with offbeat but easy flavors. Makes me want to try out a new fish, and new fish recipe, every day of the week.”

Melissa Kogut, executive director of Chefs Collaborative
"Fish Market is an invitation to be adventurous and to make sustainable choices when it comes to eating and preparing seafood—and also a wonderful personal chronicle of a food journey."

Jim Breslin, PheonixvilleDish.com

“With catchy names, like ‘A Bevy of Bivalves’ and ‘A Collection of Crustaceans,’ Fish Market caters to even the most novice of cooks with organization and clarity.”

    I love this easy to follow and highly readable cookbook. I am no

    I love this easy to follow and highly readable cookbook. I am not a confident cook yet I found those recipes easy to follow.

    With readily available ingredients and easy to follow instructions, I was able to prepare delicious fish with ease.

     It's also the kind of cook book that is fun to read whether you cook or not..  There is a lot of great information about fish and shellfish,
     how to purchase for freshness, how to prepare, how to select sustainable options. I enjoyed the author's personal stories
    that are included. Most of all, the author presents realistically. You have all the information and guidance you need to be successful
     with these recipes, not to mention there are some good laughs. 
    I highly recommend this book to cooks and non-cooks, especially reluctant cooks like me, Sharon B.
