Ask your fishmonger

If you’re unsure about anything, don’t hesitate to ask; fishmongers know their stuff and will be happy to give you some tips.

Also, if you have a recipe to follow but your fish of choice isn’t available, the fishmonger can suggest what to use instead.

Don’t worry about the preparation, either; short of actually cooking it for you, the fishmonger can do everything else – just say if you want something boned, filleted or skinned.
