Overview

Houston's close proximity to the teaming Gulf of Mexico waters has inspired chefs from every genre of cooking. This cookbook offers more than forty delectable recipes, showcasing classic seafood preparations and some not-so-traditional twists. It also serves as a delicious glimpse into the Bayou City's vast cultural diversity and an introduction to some closely guarded tips and tricks from professional chefs.

Seafood lovers will enjoy the richly elegant Lobster Thermidor from Rainbow Lodge, the best-selling Bouillabaisse from Olivette at the Houstonian, and the decadent Shrimp and Crab Cheesecake from La Griglia-all of which have been featured on the eateries' menus for years. For those with a more adventurous palate who crave food a bit on the exotic side, recipes such as the beautiful and tasty Jumping Squid appetizer from Khun Kay and Haven's Peanut-Crusted Softshell Crab will thrill.

Famed veteran chefs like Arturo Boada, Hugo Ortega, and Mark Cox and award-winning "youngbloods" such as Bryan Caswell and Jamie Zelko offer tips for the home cook on preparing and selecting the best of the "fruits of the sea." With recipes and advice from a winning panel of chefs, this cookbook is sure to be a kitchen staple.
From crab, shrimp, and lobster to oysters, salmon, and snapper, Houston Classic Seafood offers a sampling of the bounty of the Gulf Coast and a dizzying array of delicious ways to enjoy it.
