Seafood Fair


Review by Debbie Mazo


Everyone knows that fish offers one of the most important low-fat sources of dietary protein around. Yet, most people think that cooking seafood is a time-consuming, complicated task requiring special techniques. Test the waters at Seafood Fair, and you'll learn that even the beginning cook can be a culinary wizard when it comes to seafood.

If you need some prep information on clams, find out how to clean clams (start by scrubbing the outside of each clam with a bristle brush to remove all the sand and dirt on the outside of the shell).
