Stein's Complete Seafood ~ The ultimate fast food, fish is the
home cooks no-fuss yet sophisticated weeknight or company dinner.
But often even the most nimble cooks are limited to a handful of varieties
of fish and shellfish, intimidated away from others despite every
fishmongers best attempt to dispense cooking directions. What these
cooks really need is a color step-by-step guide that shows how to work with
the other 90 percent of seafood thats under the glass. Seafood
cooking school proprietor Rick Stein has just the answer in this heavily
photographic manual with recipes. RICK STEINS SEAFOOD shows in detail
how to scale and gut round fish for the grill, skin and pan-fry whole flat
fish, fillet small round fish for stuffing, bake whole fish in a salt or
pastry casing, hot-smoke fish, prepare live crabs for steaming, clean and
stuff squid, and much, much more. More than 200 recipes, such as Sea Bass
Baked in a Salt Crust and Stuffed Grilled Mussels, will inspire cooks to
put the techniques Stein presents to good use. Extensive charts and color
illustrations help cooks tell their mackerel from their monkfish.
