In the Kitchen with the Pike Place Fish Guys: 100 Recipes and Tips from the World-Famous Crew of Pike Place Fish
Seattle’s Pike Place Fish Market—the country’s top fish market—reels in the world’s best seafood recipes in this cookbook with friendly tips and a sustainability approach that every home cook can master. The world-famous, must-see, salmon-tossing Fish Guys have been enthralling and educating hordes of fans since 1965. Located in the nation’s oldest continually operating farmers’ market, which draws ten million visitors each year, Pike Place Fish revives the lost art of selecting and preparing seafood. The Fish Guys even inspired the best-selling business book FISH!, which has sold more than 1.4 million copies.
In the Kitchen with the Pike Place Fish Guys serves up savory seafood recipes and tips answering the most popular question the Fish Guys get: “How do you cook that?” It features a unique primer on sustainability, with inspiring words from the fishmongers who made Pike Place Fish entirely sustainable in 2011. Home cooks will learn how to cook fish and seafood from the pros, including storage and easy cooking techniques, in addition to mouthwatering recipes like Thai Curry Mussels, Anders’s Dungeness Crab and Bacon Quiche, Cajun BBQ Shrimp Skewers, and Coconut Maple Salmon. Ideas for entertaining friends (who will clamor for the Fish Guys’ clambakes and paella parties) are showcased as well.
Cooks&Books&Recipes Featured Cook Heather:
The entire cookbook is filled with great stories of the Pike Place Fish Market, and there’s even an infographic on how to throw a halibut–a lesson every good cook should learn, I think. There are more than 100 recipes from the fish mongers who work the market, along with beautiful photography and drool-worthy scenery of the Puget Sound. I would recommend this book for any home cook who loves Frutti de Mare (fruits of the sea).
