Synopsis

Leith's Fish Bible by C. J. Jackson

Leiths Fish Bible is the only fish cookbook you will ever need. With innumerable recipes from all over the world, it has something for every occasion from a simple supper to an elegant dinner. As with every book from the classic Leiths series, all recipes are fool-proof, easy to use with an emphasis on proper technique. Here are many of the classics - dishes such as Sole Meuniere, Risotto Nero, Lobster Thermidor and Deep-fried Cod in Beer Batter - alongside the contemporary - Mackerel, Rice Noodle and Peanut Salad, Noisettes of Salmon with Cucumber and Fennel Salsa - and the exotic - Braised Octopus in Rioja, Seafood Laksa and Sushi Nigiri. Chapters are divided by fish groups (with alternative fish given for every recipe) with an extensive chapter on Shellfish as well as Preserved Fish. There is also detailed information on methods of preparation and cooking techniques such as filleting and boning, alongside preparing shellfish and home-smoking. This new edition has been revised, updated and redesigned with several new recipes and stunning new photographs. Comprehensive and authoritative, it is an essential book for every kitchen.
