Simply Shrimp

by James Peterson

Grilled, sautéed, baked, poached, or fried: No matter how you make it, shrimp is just about everybody's favorite seafood.

It's great in cold appetizers, stunning in soups, and a knockout ingredient in stuffed pastas, dumplings, and Asian-style rolls. Shrimp's taste complements an incredible diversity of other foods, from honey-sweet tropical fruits, to mouth-searing chiles, to smoky/tomatoey barbecue sauces. As if all this weren't enough to recommend it, shrimp is actually good for you—low in fat and calories and high in the omega-3 fatty acids that promote cardiovascular health.

In Simply Shrimp, award-winning cookbook author and popular cooking teacher James Peterson brings his culinary acumen to the creation of dishes showcasing the world's best-loved shellfish. In this sequel to his very successful Simply Salmon, Peterson begins by demystifying the process of buying and cleaning shrimp, then offers 80 outstanding recipes that celebrate shrimp's unmatchable versatility. Chapters are devoted to specific methods of preparation, with step-by-step photos to guide you through particular techniques and gorgeous color shots of finished dishes, all taken by Peterson himself. Peterson's sumptuous, international bill of fare includes Thai Shrimp Curry, Shrimp Ravioli, Shrimp Quesadillas, Shrimp Samosas with Sweet and Sour Chutney, and even a delicate, savory Shrimp and Tarragon Custard.
