Book Description

There are many varieties of fish out there to choose from, whether you catch your own or purchase it from your favorite market. But no matter where it's caught, all fish and seafood are cooked by the same basic methods and techniques. Everyone knows incorporating fish and seafood in the diet is good for health reasons, but using the proper techniques will make it easier to eat fish and seafood on a regular basis. Why? Because fish and seafood tastes better when prepared properly.

You'll learn: dry heat and moist cooking methods, guidelines for purchasing fish, and basic procedures for baking, oven broiling, sautéing, pan frying and searing, deep fat frying, simmering, and poaching.

This is a no-frills guide for purchasing, preparing, and cooking fresh fish and seafood. You'll learn what to look for when purchasing fish, the basic differences between dry and moist heat methods, and all the step by step methods for the procedures needed to prepare any catch. This handy book is perfect for taking with you to the fish market, or reading while cooking in the kitchen. No fancy techniques, just the basics of fish cookery.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good book, and like the title says, it's BASIC November 21, 2013
By R. Clay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love fish, but I've always found it difficult to cook fish. And I don't like using cookbooks or recipes -- makes me feel like a robot, not an artist. Oh well, I finally broke down and bought this book. And like the title says, it is BASIC, which is just what I needed!

Cooking fish is a world unto itself. Each type of fish and each cooking method is different and requires different times, tools, temperatures. Some fish cooks very fast, so you have to learn about timing the other food you're cooking, so it all comes together at the same time. Some fish gets too rubbery and weird if you overcook it, or feels cold and clammy if you undercook it. This book helps a lot, by giving you insights about these things.

The format is easy to follow, and there is a great variety of fish and seafood dishes so you won't get bored. I urge you not to just get one fish cooked well, and then make that your only fish dish! Try different things, even things you might think you wouldn't enjoy. Just make sure the people who eat your food don't have allergies to shellfish or anything like that.

This book is good for someone who is not an everyday cook, but also offers challenging and complex dishes for people who cook a lot, and really know how to wield a knife. It makes a good gift for a cook, but sometimes cooks can get a little touchy (I know I do) when someone, by giving me a cookbook, might be implying I don't know my stuff. But if you give this book the right way to the right home chef, you'll probably be rewarded with some great fish meals in the future.

The only reason I gave four stars instead of 5 is just because I find it difficult to use a book in the kitchen.
