Table of Contents

Fish:The Basics has received praise from all quarters for its breadth, clarity, and for the flexibility it gives the seafood cook. Every one of the more than 100 recipes suggests as many as a dozen choices of fish and shellfish that work equally well, with precise cooking times for each. The second part of the book contains more than 200 illustrated profiles of fish and shellfish, including many of the lesser-known varieties that are increasingly common in the marketplace, with a list of recipes that are appropriate for each one. Dozens of step-by-step illustrations of technique in Fish:The Basics ensure that the seafood cook, whether beginner or expert, will never be caught short and forced to choose something less than fresh.

Now that you've caught a bass and 2 perch what the heck do you do with 'em? This book explains approximate calories, butchering, type of flesh and recommendations for cooking what one has caught. Particularly useful for the fisherman/cook with a variety of hooked ingredients.
