Your most used fish cookbook?

jen223 | Jun 19, 2015 09:27 AM

Recently I've been on a mission to cook different proteins than normal and realized I rarely buy fish, which is a shame because it's healthy and tasty!

My current repertoire for fish is limited - pretty much S&P/lemon, some rub, or steamed Chinese style. I know little about differences in various fishes and usually just buy something that's not too expensive.

Looking for a good fish cookbook (other seafood welcome as well!) that will guide me through different types of fish, how to buy, and good recipes for them. Learning things like wild caught Alaskan salmon is better for you than farm-raised, or swordfish is endangered, or a cheaper but good substitute for haibut/chilean sea bass would be useful to me.

Basically my goal is to introduce fish into my family's dinner rotation at least once a week with varying but relatively simple recipes without breaking the bank. Not wanting to focus on sushi (not toddler-friendly).

I saw a post a few years back about Rick Moonen's fish book, and I see there is one by Mark Bittman. Any thoughts on these or any others?
