Publishers Text

We all know that fish offers us one of the most important low-fat sources of dietary protein available. But behind this significant fact lies a startling truth: most of us think cooking fish is an arduous, complicated endeavor requiring special skills. Not true, declares Jane Brody, the New York Times Personal Health columnist and nutrition expert. Now Brody, author of the landmark bestseller Jane Brody's Nutrition Book, has produced a wonderful guide to seafood combined with a collection of delicious, simple-to-follow, healthful recipes that prove that cooking with fish is easier than you think.

Part One is a comprehensive overview of seafood, including chapters on how to select, clean, fillet, and store fish; basic seafood cooking techniques; a full discussion of seafood safety; a comprehensive nutrition chart; and the up-to-date health benefits of adding fish to your diet.

Part Two is a collection of more than 230 recipes from appetizers and soups to salads and main courses, including special sections on grilling and microwaving. Inside you'll find such scrumptious dishes as:
* Shrimp and Onion Pizza
* Orzo with Clams
* Fish Tacos with Cilantro Pesto
* Oven-Steamed Bass with Crisp Vegetables
* Grilled Salmon with Fennel
* Sweet Pepper Fish Cakes
* Lobster and Shrimp Salad in Basil Buttermilk
* Potato, Corn, and Monkfish Soup
* And much more!
