River Cottage Fish
The environmental impact of fishing has been a hot-button issue the past few years, which is why the new release by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall and Nick Fisher is a great resource. This book, entitled The River Cottage Fish Book: The Definitive Guide to Sourcing and Cooking Sustainable Fish and Shellfish, examines the ecological and moral issues of fishing, while also teaching valuables skills such as catching and descaling. While seafood can be difficult to cook, The River Cottage Fish Book gives step-by-step instructions for preparing fish and shellfish in a variety of ways, from pickling to frying to smoking, and includes more than 135 recipes, such as Thai Crab and Fish Soup; Mussel, Spinach and Bacon Gratin; and Clams with Chanterelles. The River Cottage Fish Book is available in stores and online for $45.
