The Fishes & Dishes Cookbook
The Fishes & Dishes Cookbook: Seafood Recipes and Salty Stories from Alaska's Commercial Fisherwomen
by Kiyo March, Tomi Marsh, and Laura Cooper
A generation ago, the women featured in this book might have been celebrated as pioneers. In today's world they are simply living their dreams and challenging one of the last frontiers--the male-dominated commercial fishing grounds of Alaska. They have worked every job, from captain to cook, and nearly every northern fishery, even the Bering Sea king crab grounds made infamous by TV's Deadliest Catch.
Their tantalizing recipes for a full day of meals include Corn Cakes with Shrimp, Avocado, and Tomato; Salmon Dumplings with Coconut Curry Sauce; Thai Clam Chowder; Halibut Cheeks Picatta; Linguine with Mussels and Cider, Bacon, and Shallot Cream Sauce; and Crab, Shiso and Avocado Tempura Salad. And don't forget to try one of their libations from the Northland, a Dark and Stormy--dark rum and ginger beer, over ice, with a lemon twist.
