Out of the blue: Mark Hix's simple, delicious fish and shellfish soups and starters

Fish is an integral part of our diets, but there's a lot of confusion surrounding the question about which species we should or shouldn't be eating. Good-quality fishmongers will always have information about which fish are suitable to eat, but that may not be the case if you're buying from a supermarket fish counter, where knowledgeable labour is limited. On the whole, I firmly believe we could and should be more experimental with our fish buying, as there are so many delicious lesser-known varieties of fish waiting to be explored – the problem is so often in the name: if you haven't heard of it, you're less likely to buy it.
