Simply Shellfish

When it comes to preparing everyday elegant, healthful meals, nothing is simpler—or more delicious—than shellfish. Packed with protein, minerals, and heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, shellfish is low in fat and calories and extremely easy to prepare.

In Simply Shellfish, acclaimed cookbook author and shellfish expert Leslie Glover Pendleton presents a collection of her best recipes for shrimp, crab, scallops, clams, mussels, oysters, lobster, squid, and sides. These sophisticated, easy-to-make dishes use a minimum number of ingredients, all of which are supermarket-friendly and borrow flavors from cuisines around the world.

Simply Shellfish includes recipes for every kind of shellfish under the sea, from easy adaptations of old favorites such as Hot Crab and Spinach Dip, Linguine with White Clam Sauce, and Lobster Chardonnay with Mushrooms and Peas to newer innovations such as Seared Scallops in Gazpacho; Shrimp, Feta, and Golden Onion Pizza; and a Chilled Shellfish Platter with Chile Vinaigrette and Chive Almond Pesto. There is an entire chapter devoted to delectable sides such as Grapefruit Rice with Chives, Spinach Salad with Blue Cheese and Plum Dressing, and Roasted Maple Butter Acorn Squash.

In addition to the recipes, Leslie includes brief definitions of shellfish varieties, essential tips on purchasing and handling, and heaps of her expert advice: "Have fun, experiment, cook with confidence, and eat well!"
