A complete and authoritative guide to preparing meals centered entirely around seafood, this cookbook explains a wide range of dishes, from classic to contemporary, using plenty of diagrams and straightforward language. Readers will be guided through the proper techniques of filleting, boning, and home-smoking, and will discover a wide array of simple recipes such as Risotto Nero, or Deep-fried Cod in Beer Batter, to more extravagant menu items including Noisettes of Salmon with Cucumber and Fennel Salsa, or Braised Octopus in Rioja.
'I'd love to have written this book. It is so comprehensive in its coverage of every type of fish and shellfish that you are ever likely to buy in Britain ... The recipes in the book are so interesting, every aspect of modern cookery is covered ... We will keep a copy in the kitchen as a crib!' - Rick Stein
