Five chapters are organized by flavor profile, including American, Bistro, Latin, East and South Asian, and North African/Mediterranean. Each recipe is grouped into a set matching a main course of fish or shellfish with a complementary grain, pasta, salad, or vegetable. Fish encompasses all of the best techniques for cooking seafood perfectly, including grilling, roasting, salt-crusting, and wok-braising, and all dishes feature sustainable seafood. These exciting recipes make the most of one of the world's healthiest proteins, demystifying it and suggesting a year's worth of meals for cooks of all skill levels.

Praise For Fish: 54 Seafood Feasts

"Cree LeFavour doesn't write mere recipes-she writes symphonies of flavors, composing some of the most soulful meals I've ever come across. Her books are the most grease-splattered, dog-eared cookbooks in my kitchen, and Fish extends this extraordinary streak. It's like an ultimate greatest-hits collection from the sea."- Johnathan Miles, cooking columnist for Field & Stream magazine, and author of the novels Dear American Airlines and Want Not, and of the cookbook The Wild Chef

"We can each make a big difference by choosing ocean-friendly seafood. With these recipes, home cooks can serve delicious fish - including some new kinds - and feel good about how their ingredients were sourced."- Sheila Bowman, Monterey Bay Aquarium Seafood Watch

"Cree LeFavour has created a beautiful, wide-ranging book that makes me excited about getting down to the pleasurable business of making good seafood."
- Paul Greenberg, bestselling author of Four Fish: The Future of the Last Wild Food
