Field Guide to Seafood Review
I have purchased several books on seafood hoping to find one that is devoted to the basics of buying seafood (intended for the seafood challenged). Field Guide to Seafood is the book I was searching for ! It describes the various varieties of fish and shellfish, gives alternate names for them, tells something about them, gives ideas for preparation and recipes and tells what to look for in buying them.
Field Guide to Seafood is well organized by alphabetical listing of names and very easy to use. I have spent considerably more on other seafood books but this is my favorite. So it’s all here, the good, the bad, and the delicious. Field Guide to Seafood is designed to help you make wise choices. Use a Seafood Watch guide as a bookmark, and you’ve got a great combination!
