Description: In recent years, seafood has become more popular than ever, and no wonder -- it's delicious, versatile, and good for you, too. Fish markets and supermarkets now offer an almost bewilderingly extensive range of fish and shellfish. Cooking Seafood removes the mystery, however, explaining simply how to choose, store, prepare, and cook a variety of seafood.
Recipes include familiar classics such as paella, seafood risotto, and beer-battered fish with fries, and more exotic dishes such as Russian fish pies, scallop ceviche, and teriyaki salmon. As well as simple recipes such as smoked salmon and arugula salad, there are others, like sushi hand-rolls and sugar-cured salmon, that offer more of a challenge.
Also included are special sections on ingredients and techniques, such as steaming fish and making tempura.
Beautiful photography and helpful step-by-step pictures enhance the recipes, resulting in an informative and practical book that will tempt both novice and experienced cooks alike.
