'Carolina Catch' just released, explores North Carolina fish and shellfish
"Carolina Catch: Cooking North Carolina Fish and Shellfish from Mountains to Coast." by Debbie Moose, published by University of North Carolina Press.
Early in life, North Carolinian Debbie Moose encountered fish primarily in stick form, but once she experienced her first raw oyster and first soft-shell crab, their pure flavors switched her on to fish and shellfish forever. Moose has now written a cookbook that unlocks for everyone the fresh tastes of North Carolina grilled tuna, steamed shrimp, pan-seared mountain trout, fried catfish, and baked littleneck clams, just to name a few. In 96 dishes, Moose shows how to prepare North Carolina fish and shellfish - wild-caught, farm-raised, freshwater and saltwater - in both classic southern and inventive contemporary ways. The book's Best Basics section provided a one-stop resource for selection, preparation and storage, and the Think Seasonal section offers a comprehensive list with descriptions and peak availability of North Carolina fish and shellfish.
Debbie Moose is an award winning journalist and author of seven cookbooks, including two in the Savor the South series: Buttermilk and Southern Holidays.
"Terrific and tantalizing, spritely and informed, Debbie Moose's 'Carolina Catch' features a wide variety of exciting ways to cook fish, including many interesting regional and international recipes - all of which I want to try." - Nathalie Dupree.
