To help dispel the mystery surrounding seafood, visit the catch at Full of handy tips, this online magazine offers all the basics you'll need to know when it comes to the art of seafood cooking. is based on the award-winning Simply Seafood magazine that originated in 1990.

For example, do your dinner guests a favor and remove the pin bones from fish fillets before cooking. To take out the pin bones, run your fingers along the flesh from the broader head end toward the tail end. You should feel the tips of the bones lift up a bit in the flesh. Using small needlenose pliers or large tweezers, grab the tip of each pin bone and gently pull to remove.

According to the Seafood Guide, you'll discover that swordfish should be cooked quickly over a very hot charcoal fire or under a preheated broiler.
