200 Best Canned Fish & Seafood Recipes
Tasty and innovative recipes that show just how creative a home cook can be with a simple can of fish.
Canned fish or seafood is ready when you are. It’s a convenient alternative to fast food, and it’s generally lean, healthful and convenient. Many tins are also interchangeable, so you can substitute what you have on hand — something you can’t do with fresh seafood. And the best part? You need look no further than your kitchen cupboard for the beginnings of a fantastic dish.
This book includes traditional and updated recipes, new creations and canned twists on classic fish dishes. The recipes feature canned seafood
that can found in virtually any supermarket across North America: tuna, crab, salmon, mackerel, cod, sardines, sprats, kippers, anchovies, roe, shrimp, clams, oysters, mussels, squid and octopus. The key to cooking with canned seafood is that it has to be treated as a different species from fresh fish — its flavors and textures are different. These delicious and creative recipes work with these differences and elevate canned seafood to something sublime.
