The Secrets of the Greenmarket Fisherman, by Florence Fabricant

"It has been almost 30 years since Alex Villani first lugged his catch from his boat, the Blue Moon, to a Greenmarket stand in New York City. His Blue Moon Fish stand has been going ever since. Now his wife, Stephanie Villani, has written a book about fishing Long Island waters and how to cook the harvest. The chapters are organized by type of fish: round, flat, flavorful and shellfish. The straightforward recipes (some from chefs) include swordfish broiled with miso, blackfish poached in vermouth and bluefish broiled with lemons, capers and mustard. Ms. Villani explains the condition of the various fisheries, and how to tend your fish in the kitchen."
