Seafood is one of the healthiest foods you can eat. But fish and shellfish are not just yummy — they also play a part in a large and interconnected system that involves the whole earth’s well-being. In The Whole Fish: How Adventurous Eating of Seafood Can Make You Healthier, Sexier, and Help Save the Ocean, food writer Maria Finn takes us on a journey into the ‘whole food’ cooking movement, one that advocates eating the entire fish from gill to adipose fin. It’s an approach that can not only improve your heath, but which can also help save the complex ecosystem that supports the ocean. The Whole Fish includes seafood recipes from some of the best chefs in the business; get ready for fish head soup, broiled collars, brined eggs, relish from the fatty bellies, baked skins for “fish bacon,” dried bones for grinding into “salt.” The new movement to eat and enjoy the distinct flavors of the whole animal — whether it lives on land or sea — is a satisfying and exciting way to add the spirit of adventure to life. Preparing and eating a meal can be a form of gratitude and community — not just with our friends and families but with all life on earth.
