Barbecues are fun and you can enjoy grilled food whatever the climate. Fish is delicious and you don't have to live close to the sea to enjoy it. What better way to cook all sorts of fish than on a grill - it's quick, it's healthy and the fish not only retains all its natural flavour, but can also be enhanced by wonderfully exotic spices. This book contains more than 90 recipes for barbecuing fish and shellfish, divided into useful chapters according to the way the fish is bought or cooked. Recipes for all sorts of fish are included, from anchovies to sea bass, and a table of substitutions contained in the introduction means that the cook can quickly find a range of recipes that will suit the fish that is available. The introduction also provides information on barbecue basics - how to choose between and use the variety of barbecue grills and tools that are available- and on how to buy, prepare and cook fish, including grilling, cooking in foil, cooking in the coals or on skewers, roasting and smoking.
