"I don't cook or fish. This wonderful cookbook makes me regret both those decisions."
"With the publication of Go Fish, we can all learn [Laurent Tourondel's] secrets and gain inspiration from his recipes. This book is essential reading."
From swordfish to littleneck clams, exotic sea urchin to succulent monkfish, America's waters are home to a stunningly diverse array of fish and shellfish that are ideal for home cooking. And, as celebrated chef Laurent Tourondel of New York's BLT Steak reveals in Go Fish, creating elegant, mouthwatering seafood at home can be marvelously easy and faster than you might think.
An acknowledged fish fanatic, Tourondel offers a beautiful and easy-to-follow guide to the fine art of preparing restaurant-quality seafood at home. From Salt-Crusted Salmon to Spicy Moroccan Swordfish, Go Fish shows how the mild but nuanced flavors of fish, married with a chef's palette of herbs and spices, can yield a wide range of dinner-table masterpieces.
Go Fish delivers more than 100 seafood recipes infused with flavor, style, and simplicity. Melt-in-your-mouth appetizers, hearty chowders, perfect pastas and risottos, and aromatic main courses are matched with sides and desserts that complete the seafood-centered feast. Whether presenting vibrant adaptations of time-honored classics like New England Clam Chowder or bold signature dishes like Salmon Steak with Ginger Chili Glaze, Tourondel reveals how sophisticated seafood cuisine can be prepared with accessible ingredients and uncomplicated techniques.
Along with each main course, Tourondel provides a wine recommendation that perfectly accents the flavors and textures of the meal.
Complete with an overview of more than fifty varieties of American fish and shellfish, plus helpful shopping and preparation tips, Go Fish gives home cooks all the tools they need to create memorable meals for family and friends.
Featuring a foreword by the legendary Daniel Boulud and two dozen tantalizing photographs, Go Fish is a stylish yet down-to-earth blueprint for exquisite seafood cookery at home.
