Praise

“A thorough, thoughtful 608-page guide to finding and eating ‘good’ fish.”
—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
