Fish: The Complete Guide to Buying and Cooking is a book that simplifies, once and for all, the process of preparing fish.

Each entry describes how the fish is sold (fillets, steaks, whole, salted), other names it goes by, how the fish should look, and buying tips. Fish begins with general guidelines on how to store,prepare, and cook fish, whether sauteing, frying, grilling, or smoking, and you will find easy-to-follow illustrations of such important basics as how to gut and fillet a fish. Fish also includes up-to-the-minute information on the health benefits of fish in our diet.

And the vast majority of the recipes are ready in less than thirty minutes.… (more)
