Broaden Your Seafood Scope.

A look at the seafood counter reveals a wide variety of fish, from mild in flavor and flaky in texture to rich and meaty. In Foolproof Fish, we show you how versatile they all are by providing approachable recipes, most of which you can make with more than one kind of fish. You're guaranteed a flavorful meal no matter what you bring home from the market or monger. We'll broaden your seafood scope by incorporating it into any course—vibrant appetizers such as Sizzling Garlic Shrimp and Peruvian Fish Ceviche with Radishes and Orange; lots of easy weeknight meals like Moroccan Fish and Couscous Packets and Tuna Steaks with Cucumber-Peanut Salad; elegant dinner party fare such as Roasted Whole Side of Salmon with Orange Beurre Blanc; or comforting soups like Cod in Coconut Broth with Lemon Grass and Ginger. Even bring the fish fry home with grease-free Fish and Chips and Shrimp Po' Boys. And the recipes are foolproof: no fish fillets sticking to the grill or rubbery scallops.

Learn the everyday need-to-know fish recipes

The book opens with a chapter on the core fish recipes that display easy, essential, transferable techniques—think Pan-Seared Salmon Steaks, Perfect Poached Fish, Sautéed Tilapia, and Clams Steamed in White Wine. You can serve these preparations with one of the many sauce or relish recipes we provide, and pair them with your favorite sides. Once you learn these basics, the rest of fish cookery is about applying these techniques to multicomponent dishes.

Globally-inspired recipes

You're going to cook more fish if the recipes are appealing and approachable. Make dinner easy with our quick-to-prepare fish dishes—along with the guarantee that they'll be satisfying and great-tasting.
