Fish and Seafood

Baldwin, Carol and Mounts, Julie

One Fish, Two Fish, Crawfish, Bluefish : The Smithsonian Sustainable Seafood Cookbook

Overfishing has led to the depletion of once abundant fish and shellfish species. Yet seafood is a healthy and desirable choice in our diets. So what is an ecologically conscious, seafood-loving cook to do? Carole C. Baldwin and Julie H. Mounts have solved the dilemma. Rather than suggest avoiding consumption of seafood for conservation purposes, they present an array of U.S. seafood species to choose from that are fished or farmed in an ecologically sound manner. Furthermore, they have assembled delicious recipes from America's top chefs based on these species.

Fred Thompson

Crazy for Crab : Everything You Need to Know to Enjoy Fabulous Crab at Home


Marylanders worship soft-shell, Mainers are loyal to peekytoe, Floridians devour stone crab, Alaskans revel in king crab, and Pacific Northwesterners swear by Dungeness. But the truth is, crab is no longer just a regional dish, or even a seasonal one. Today all of the varieties, and more, are shipped to markets all over the country. And because at least one type of crab is always in season and you can get picked fresh crabmeat, as well as frozen and canned, throughout the year, crab fans never have to go without. In Crazy for Crab Fred Thompson begins with a comprehensive chapter on the basics of crab varieties and how to cook them, then launches into chapters of delectable recipes.
