Seafood cookbook cover imageSeafood cooks have a new resource for recipes, courtesy of the NCDA&CS Marketing Division. “Seafood Cookery in North Carolina” was published recently as part of the Got to Be NC program.

The book contains 135 recipes developed by NCDA&CS staff and seafood associations. It features recipes for most of the wild and farm-raised seafood harvested in the state, including ocean fish, shrimp, oysters, clams, blue crab, scallops, catfish and rainbow trout. It also has tips on buying, thawing, cooking and storing fish and shellfish.

William Small, NCDA&CS seafood marketing specialist, says the cookbook is actually an updated version of one the department published several years ago. New recipes accompany favorites from the previous version.
