Fish Without a Doubt: The Cook’s Essential Companion
No doubt about it, fish is a cook’s dream. Fast. Low in fat, versatile, and healthful, it’s even brain food. No other fish cookbook contains such a comprehensive choosing of approachable, contemporary recipes. Fish Without a Doubt is written by a pair of experts: a nationally known three-star seafood chef whose true passion is teaching home cooks, and an award-winning writer and sought-after food authority. Arranged for the cook’s complete convenience, Fish Without a Doubt encompasses chapters on all the techniques of fish cookery from poaching to grilling to sautéing as well as on all the most popular seafood dishes from appetizers, to soups and salads, to burgers and pasta.
The recipes range from updated versions of classics (Trout Almondine, Linguine with Clams, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes) to the latest favorites (Steamed Black Bass with Sizzling Ginger,Tuna Burgers with Cucumber Relish, Thai-Style Mussels). Fish Without a Doubt includes slews of quickies for weeknight specials (Broiled Fillets with Butter and Herbs) and centerpieces for splashier occasions (A Big Poached Char). Featuring only seafood that is not overfished, Fish Without a Doubt provides the latest information for the eco-conscious cook about our last wild frontier.
Fish Without a Doubt Review
I love everything about Fish Without a Doubt book! However, the best thing is the list from Chef Rick, telling you all the ingredients you need to have to make ALL the recipes. How helpful! There is nothing more annoying than going through your favorite chefs’ recipes, only to find that you don’t have that herb, or spice, or oil, and you can’t make dinner without another trip to the store.
The clam chowder is incredible. The lesson on court boullion is worth the price of the entire book. For the person who wanted pictures, there are plenty of pretty books by people like Ina Garten, with lovely photos and little substance. Fish Without a Doubt is for a person who wants to master the art of cooking fish. Thank you, Chef Rick.
