A sustainability-minded, comprehensive cookbook on fish and seafood and the many ways to prepare them for novices and experts alike, from James Beard Award–winning chef and author John Ash
The Hog Island Book of Fish & Seafood takes a comprehensive dive into the world of cooking with salt- and freshwater treasures—shellfish, crustaceans, finned fish, and many more. A valuable resource for all things seafood for both home and professional cooks, the cookbook demystifies this immense world with easily accomplished recipes from a wide variety of cuisines. Featuring favorites from the kitchens of Hog Island Oyster Bars, every conceivable method for preparing mouthwatering recipes is represented: baking, braising, steaming, roasting, deep-frying, grilling, broiling, poaching, pan-frying, marinating, curing, smoking, and pickling, as well as serving raw. With more than 200 recipes, this authoritative compendium is proof that seafood is not only delicious but also one of the easiest and most versatile proteins to prepare.
