"Fresh, well-prepared seafood is as good or better tasting than any steak, chicken, or pork dish and infinitely better for you."
-Erin Hicks Miller

This delicious offering of seafood favorites from Houston's famous restaurants showcases classic seafood preparations alongside those with a decidedly non-traditional approach bringing the unique flavors of Houston's Gulf Coast cuisine to the kitchen. Filled with tips from well known chefs and award-winning newcomers, this book offers advice for the home cook on selecting and preparing the "fruits of the sea" and is sure to become a favorite for every seafood lover.

A welcome addition to Pelican's Classic Recipe Series, this volume includes recipes for Lobster Thermidor from Rainbow Lodge, Shrimp and Crab Cheesecake from La Griglia, and the best-selling Bouillabaisse from Olivette at the Houstonian. For seafood with a twist, the Jumping Squid appetizer from Khun Kay, Candied Smoked Salmon from Zelko Bistro, and Peanut-Crusted Soft-Shell Crab from Haven provide an exotic departure from classic fare.

The author's candid recollections of her own love-hate relationship with seafood, her vibrant photography, engaging anecdotes about each establishment, wine pairing suggestions, and easy-to-follow format make this ocean addition to Pelican's Classic Recipes Series a must for every kitchen library.
