Excellent cookbook for fish. If you want to buy one cookbook on that subject, get this. Rick Stein is agreat cook and this book explains all the priciple ways of preparing fish in an easy to follow manner. I prepared scallops for the first time tonight and the result was great. Every time I come across a fish or seafood I have never prepared, this is the book I open to find out what to do and so far it has not disappointed me.
