Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times
One of Harlow's best contributions to cookery is a novel way to produce "deep fried" fish in the oven, both reducing calorie counts and curtailing the mess and waste of deep frying in the home kitchen....This imaginative book will be in special demand by West Coast populations closest to the shores he writes about.
Partners Pages
This one is almost guaranteed to wind up as well-thumbed and sauce-flecked as the last. West Coast Seafood takes an encyclopedic approach to the fish found in the Pacific. It walks you through varieties, giving specific types and Latin names. Then you get a good description of the fish and its habits and tips on shopping and seasonality. Finally there are recipes, including an appealing mix of Asian and Mediterranean influences that somehow are adventurous without ever straying over the line of good taste.
