As an ingredient, canned seafood often gets short shrift; it's often considered a mundane filler for salads, casseroles, and sandwiches by those in a hurry or on a budget. But while fresh is always best, there's no reason why canned seafood has to be boring.
Discover how to transform everyday canned seafood into stylish, delicious dishes in this cookbook that features innovative recipes for not only tinned salmon and tuna but clams, oysters, shrimp, crabmeat, sardines, anchovies, mackerel, and more. Make sophisticated versions of traditional seafood dishes such as Creamy Garlic & Clam Chowder; New England Salmon Cakes; and Apple, Cheddar & Tuna Melt; and try out imaginative new recipes such as Oyster & Artichoke Stew, Sardine & Potato Pancakes, Clam & Fontina Pizza, and Shiitake Mushrooms Stuffed with Crabmeat.
This cookbook is perfect for students, those on a budget, or those with time constraints, but it's also a sea-worthy companion for any home cook with a pantry. Elevating canned seafood to new and delectable heights, Tin Fish Gourmet proves that there is life after tuna casserole.
