Description: Fish expert Aldo Zilli says "My love affair with fish started early. At the age of 11, I worked for my local fishmonger on the Italian Adriatic coast, and was paid in fish. I've been fanatical about fish ever since and am delighted to share with you my knowledge of and passion for the subject in Fish & Shellfish." 

Aldo's straightforward approach and accessible recipes put the fun back into fish. Covering everything from how to tell if fish is really fresh to the best cooking methods for each type -- from barbecuing to steaming and roasting to poaching in milk and baking in foil -- Fish & Shellfish includes more than 100 delicious recipes, divided into five sections, that are guaranteed to tempt even the most nervous of fish cooks: 

  • Round Fish including recipes such as Deep-fried Cod and Chips, Tahini Baked Haddock and Oriental Squid

The cookbook also includes a comprehensive guide to the various preparation techniques -- each of which is illustrated with clear step-by-step pictures -- from cleaning, gutting and filleting fish, to cutting steaks and stuffing and rolling fish parcels. So whether you are looking for an everyday recipe for lunch or supper or a dish for a special occasion there is something for everyone in Fish & Shellfish.
