Good Fish: Sustainable Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Coast by Becky Selengut (Sasquatch)

Fish and shellfish, the author suggests in this beautiful cookbook, are as seasonal as produce, and we need to think about them in the same fashion, bringing ourselves closer to the food source. With that in mind, and a few uncomplicated tips on shopping, home cooks will be delighted to learn how to cook scallops, black cod, sumptuous trout and salmon, and much more—even geoduck. Well laid out so as not to intimidate the novice, including online links to how-to videos on a variety of techniques, and suggested wine pairings, Good Fish is a welcomed addition to every kitchen. –Holly
