Fish cookbook help needed

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I love eating fish at restaurants but do not often cook fish at home as no one else in the household likes it. However I would like to start cooking fish 2/3 times a week to eat more healthily and hopefully convert some of the family.

 

I am looking to buy a couple of cookbooks dedicated to fish but need your advice. What I am looking for is a book that has

 

Plenty of current recipes

Contains all types of fish - from shrimps to cod to sea bream to mussels I also am a big fan of illustrations.

I like to see what the end product should look like (this is probably the greatest criteria)

 

What books do you suggest?

Rick Stein is pretty much the oracle as far as cooking with seafood is concerned. Can recommend anything he has published, fountain of knowledge :)

Nick Nairn has written a few cookbooks with an emphasis on fish, including an excellent one of salmon recipes.

Another great fish book is FISH by Mitch Tonks.

ETA. Concur with the recommendation of Rick Stein!
