Perfect for beginners and experts alike, John Bil’s Ship to Shore: Straight Talk from the Seafood Counter pulls back the curtain on the fish business to give seafood lovers the information and confidence they need to make smart decisions about the fish they consume. Why does halibut cost what it does? Were those shrimp responsibly farmed? How do you clean an octopus? And what’s the best way to prepare those delicious clams when you get them home? Organized by size, beginning with shellfish (clams, oysters, lobster), small fish (anchovies, mackerel, herring), medium fish (trout, cod, catfish), and large fish (halibut, salmon, tuna), Ship to Shore features over fifty easy-to-follow recipes accompanied by mouth-watering, full-colour photography that will have you racing down to your local fish counter.
