—New York Times Book Review
“Hugh is the person to go to for a properly informed and insightful read on almost any food subject. This fish book is no exception. It is illuminating, original, and utterly delicious, offering a solid background on the matter, including basic techniques and an abundance of original recipes.”
—Yotam Ottolenghi, author of Plenty
“Fearnley-Whittingstall and Fisher’s comprehensive instructions on the mechanics of cleaning and preparing fish are worth the price of the book alone, but their fondness for typically unloved species of fish—mackerel, sea robins, sand dabs, and the like—makes this an indispensible book for any serious piscivore.”
—Hank Shaw, author of Hunt Gather Cook: Finding the Forgotten Feast

I should mention these supposed "exotic" fish - lots of Mackerel, Black Bass, Sole and let's not forget the crafty crab or the sneaky salmon! Yes, there are things you've likely not heard of state-side on a regular basis, but the book offers plenty of substitutions. A recipe for "Breaded plaice fillets with tartar sauce" indicates you can use Pollock, Whiting, Pouting, Megrim, Witch or Flounder - I can readily find 3 of those at no less than 3 stores within 10 minutes of my house on a regular basis, and one of those in the frozen fillet section of all of mega-marts! The book focuses on sustainability and will want you to source from fish mongers whenever possible. If you lack a fish monger, a Whole Foods will be a terrific resource. If you're still unsure, a better mega-mart will order-in fish for you at the seafood counter if you simply ask.
This is not just a counter-review. This is also to ensure that like all the other books before it, this follows the River Cottage formula not only of excellent, simple recipes and beautiful photography, but of instilling a background in education as well. Not only does this include how to shop for fish, but how to catch and fillet your own fish.Read more ›

Fish and chips recipe was very bad. My oil was the temperature they said and made the batter just like they said greasy and heavy. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Amazon Customer

Excellent, like all of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall's books. It's a veritable treatise on fish as food. Extremely thorough, well-researched, and engaging.Published on January 27, 2014 by hapaxlegomenon
