Description: Some of the most dangerous work in the world takes place on the commercial fishing grounds of Alaska, where crews must deal with gale-force winds, towering seas, long hours, and... Baked Salmon Wellington?
Kiyo and Tomi Marsh conceived this book of delicious seafood recipes and salty fishing stories while rolling around the stormy Bering Sea on Tomi's 78-foot fishing boat, the Savage. What began as a joke about "cooking in the ditch'" (the trough of the wave) morphed into The Fishes & Dishes Cookbook.
Inside, you'll peek into the remarkable lives of the women who work in America's deadliest industry. They share stories of running their own boats crab fishing on the Bering Sea, long-lining for halibut and black cod, and tendering salmon in Southeast Alaska. As the authors write, "Some of us were born into fishing, the daughters of fishermen, and some of us were drawn to fishing as a way to find adventure up in the mysterious and beautiful Alaskan wild."
Besides the 80 surprisingly simple yet mouth-watering seafood recipes -- your taste buds will never be the same! -- this fascinating book also offers tips for cleaning, preserving and preparing fish; hints for pairing wine with seafood; a glossary of commercial fishing terms; an explanation of fishing methods; on-board fashion tips; and information about sustainability.
