A Caribbean Seafood Extravaganza: Review


“ A riveting, informative, visually stimulating, mouth watering “must have”

cookbook for the average

pescetarian & food lover.

The publication is done by The Seafood Industry Development Company Limited. The content is different from the average cook book. The concept behind the book inspires an idea to introduce locally caught, prepared and affordable seafood. It offers insight into the benefits of seafood consumption and the impact on health.  Moreover, this suggests the recipes suggest a delectable and a carefully detailed script for the health conscious rave that is taking over gastronomy.  There are recipes which vary from baking, grilling, pan fry, stir fry, deep fry, poach, stew, steam and braise options. The photographer did an excellent job at capturing these 5 star gourmet plated dishes.  These include unique dishes such as Tilefish with Cheese Herb sauce, Nestled Shrimp Oriental and Sea Trout Teriyaki. But I could only imagine your anticipation to try them out and showcase them at your next event!
