Editorial Reviews

Review

"James O. Fraioli used California's Monterey Bay Aquarium's list of sustainable seafood to select 88 exciting recipes from leading restaurant chefs for this book. Fifty kinds of sea life - from Spanish mackerel to wahoo to green-mangrove crab - are described, and sidebars inform readers how the fish are harvested. The recipes are accompanied by mouth-watering color photos of the inventive dishes.

I have known that some species of fish are raised or harvested in more ocean-friendly ways than other fish, but like many consumers I knew very little about the harvesting methods. Reading Ocean Friendly Cuisine has ended my ignorance: I now can purchase fish with an education in buying sustainable seafood - seafood harvested without serious depletion or pollution of the ocean.

Readers will delight in such recipes as Pistachio-Crusted Rainbow Trout With Cilantro-Citrus Hollandaise and Peppercorn Crusted Yellowfin Tuna With Saffron and Fava-Bean Risotto. The book is a great gift for environmentally aware people and seafood lovers. Oversized at 10.25 inches square, the title stands out on bookshelves. Ocean Friendly Cuisine will enhance the cookbook and ecology sections of your store."
(Susan LosCalzo, New Age Retailer Magazine)

"This is one of the best seafood cookbooks I've seen."
  (John Ash, Culinary Director for Fetzer Vineyards)

"A must-have addition to the library of all enlightened seafood lovers... [this book] is as handsome as it is useful and intelligent."

  (James M. Lawrence, Editor Eating Well)

"A stunning collection of delicious recipes that not only taste good, but make you feel good to be a human being:"
  (Chef Tom Douglas, Tom Douglas Restaurants)

"Clearly demonstrates that there can be a responsible approach to the future of sustainable seafood."
(Chef Roy Yamaguchi, Roy's Restaurants)

I have tried a number of the recipes in the book and they are delicious and not difficult to make (no exotic or hard to find items). I have also found myself looking for the "friendly" fish when purchasing and avoiding the ones identified as endangered or stressed. I would recommend this book to anyone.

Ocean Friendly Cuisine is a great overview of fresh and saltwater bounty that can be enjoyed without the descimation of a species. The recipes reflect the inspirations of a lot of good chefs and organizations that quite simply love to cook and to present a variety of seafood that reflects the complexity of what is fish and shellfish. It's important to free ourselves from sinking into a culinary sameness that seeks to destroy specific species of fish such as the Orange Roughy, Chilean "Sea bass" not a bass, Red Snapper, Black Grouper, Atlantic halibut, bluefin tuna and wild abalone to name a few. This cookbook shows the way.
There are more fish in the sea than we are usually exposed to and the insights of this book, the Montery Aquarium, Seafood Choices Alliance, Sea Web and the chefs and restaurants involved in this effort go a long way to show how great the underutilized seafoods are today. I am lucky enough to have recipe included in this book, and can attest that the recipes represent the best of contemporary cuisine, cuisine well worth cooking both at home and professionally. If we shop wisely and dine with attention to the details of sustainable seafood then we can make a mark on making this a better world through taste and farming/fishing. As M. Cousteau tells us in the forward, seafood is our last hunted species commercially sold in markets and restaurants and we should respect the life cycle of our greatest food.

To J. Fraioli's credit he brings it all togther.

Format: Hardcover
I'm a Personal Chef specializing in dinner parties and I bought this book as inspiration for fine seafood entrees.

What originally attracted me to this book is that almost all the recipes are illustrated and the overall theme: no fish in this book is in danger of being over harvested. I like the idea of being a responsible cook.

All the recipes I've tried (including the pistachio encrusted trout with cilantro-citrus hollandaise) have been accurately written and the end result matches what's described in the recipe. It's obvious that the recipes in this book are tried & true and not just a bunch of random recipes thrown together in a book.

I highly recommend this book for the experienced cook who's looking new ways to prepare great seafood.

Format: Hardcover
Access to fresh seafood is a 'must' for complete appreciation of OCEAN FRIENDLY CUISINE: SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD RCIPES FROM THE WORLD'S FINEST CHEFS - but those with such access will find here an exceptional guide which explains different seafood available to cooks. The Monterey Bay Aquarium endorses the contents of a guide to how seafood is harvested and how chefs prepare dishes cooked with seafood from fish farms. Each dish has been designed by a leading chef - and each explores the possibilities of seafood. Color sidebars of information comment on environmental status of each fish while introductions and color photos provide discussions of the ecology and nature of each: a perfect - and unusual - compliment to the gourmet dishes.
