    Book Description
    Going only by the enthusiasm bursting out of this cookbook, the easy money says that Rick Stein, author of Taste of the Sea (and star of a British TV cooking show of the same title), is to seafood cookery what Richard Simmons is to weight loss. Stein opened a seafood restaurant in 1975 and has witnessed the rise in popularity of fish and shellfish in Great Britain in the intervening years. The same rising arc is true for the United States.

    Stein breaks his cookbook into sections dedicated to choosing, prepping, and cooking techniques as well as basic recipes for stocks, sauces, flavored butters, and dressings. The fish and shellfish recipes he divides into oily fish, Mediterranean fish, round fish, flat fish, large fish, crustaceans, shellfish, and then a collection of soups, stews, and pies. He includes a list of fish alternatives for the American and Australian markets, where some of the British and European fish won't be available.

    Take equal measures of passion for seafood and delight in brilliant flavors from Asia, the Mediterranean, the Caribbean, and North Africa, and you'll have a sense of how Stein enlivens his seafood recipes. Sure, you'll find salmon in sorrel sauce, or seafood thermidor, but that's just the comfort food side of this book. Look also for a Thai seafood salad, a Goan shark curry, and a Dover sole with cilantro, cumin, and chiles. This book is a good place to start for those who need a little extra nudge in the seafood direction. --Schuyler Ingle --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Stephen Pile, The Daily Telegraph
    The greatest food writers, Elizabeth David and M. F. K. Fisher, give a euphoric sense that food is part of life, one pleasure among a whole bundle that includes love and the smell of rain and so forth. Stein does exactly this. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

    Book Description
    Based on a 14-part PBS series, this cookbook features fresh seafood recipes that bring the exquisite tastes of fine dining to the home kitchen. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
