Australian Fish & Seafood Cookbook by Susman, Huckstep, Hodges & Swan [©Murdoch Books]


Fish and seafood are without doubt the most distinctive,  appetising and special of all produce. Years in the making,  The Australian Fish & Seafood Cookbook has been written by the most respected authorities on seafood in Australia and New Zealand.

This landmark publication contains all you need to know about selecting and preparing over 60 types of fish and seafood,  including catching methods, notes on sustainability, flavour profiles and cooking guidelines.

While many of us love the flavour and texture of beautifully cooked fish and seafood, with the plentiful nutritional benefits of eating this lean form of protein, most of us don’t cook all that much fish and seafood ourselves at home. This book is here to change this.

Featuring more than 130 of the best seafood recipes, the Australian Fish & Seafood Cookbook is brimming with information and step-by-step instructions that will inspire you to try new and different species of fish and seafood and the different ways of cooking them.

This, coupled with the most stunning species photography, means there truly is no book quite like this on the market.

It has received glowing quotes of endorsement from Neil Perry, Maggie Beer, Darren Robertson, John Lethlean, Dan Hong, Mitch Tonks and Cheong Liew amongst many other food industry greats.
