than just a cook book, Go Fish is Al
Brown’s homage to fish. It is about the joy of fishing, respecting
the catch, our oceans and enjoying the best NZ has to offer from
catch to cooking.
‘We must be proactive and keep our oceans
and sea environment front of mind. This is not just regarding the
state of our fishery, but caring for our beaches, sand dunes, marine
mammals, aquatic birds and everything else that affects all aspects
of our coastal environment.’ – Al Brown
Stunningly photographed by Kieran Scott, Go Fish
takes us back to the simple days when a great meal could be had
simply by casting your line from the dinghy.

|About the book
In Go Fish Al combines his
two great passions — cooking and fishing. Delivered with uncomplicated
excellence, Al brings us more than 90 exceptional fish and shellfish
Some of these recipes are very simple, and they
are all approachable and cookable. They underscore Al’s philosophy
that good food is about freshness of produce — and then cooking
it and seasoning it correctly. It’s crucial that the flavours
work well together, that the components are all in harmony and that
it’s all served generously.
You don’t need a flash kitchen to cook
these recipes; all you need is a good, sharp knife. All the recipes
were prepared in a little half oven with a two ring burner, in Al’s
old ‘new’ house in Lyall Bay. ‘The kitchen
is at least 50 years old, with a tiny Formica bench, lots of small
cupboards and drawers that stick all the time, no dishwasher, an
old meat safe as
a pantry and, the crowning glory, an ancient Atlas Milford electric
range.’ Says Al.
There is information on where to buy, how to
catch and how to fillet and prepare the catch in simple, clear steps.
It gives information on NZ fisheries and responsible fishing practices,
promotes eating different types of fish and provides alternative
fish to catch in NZ and overseas.
