Description: Noted chef and cookbook author Roy F. Guste, Jr., offers here recipes for cooking the 73 different varieties of Gulf Coast fish, drawing on the cuisines unique to the area, from Tex-Mex to Creole. Guste gives advice on every step of fish preparation, from determining if a fish is fresh (even if it's frozen) to scaling, drawing, filleting, and even storing. The recipes also provide a list of other Gulf Coast fish to try as well as suggestions for creating recipes of your own.
Each fish is illustrated with a gorgeous watercolor accompanied by a chart listing its common names, Latin name, maximum size, common cuts, meat characteristics such as texture and oil content, and the best cooking methods for that fish. A sauce guide and a thorough cross reference of other recipes to try for each fish are also given.
Among the enticing recipes are Grilled Scamp Fillets in Sesame-Brandy Marinade, Striped Bass en Papillote with Black Olives, Common Jack Smothered in Jalapeno Tequila Sauce, Charcoal-Grilled Triggerfish with Tomatillo-Habanero Salsa, and over one hundred more. Guste's easy-to-make recipes enliven the palate and provide delicious healthful eating.
