"The Coastal Living Cookbook. The Ultimate Recipe Collection for People Who Love the Coast" By Coastal Living, Editor. © 2004 Oxmoor House, Inc. Birmingham Alabama.

If you live along the coast, or wish you did, this is the cookbook for you. Beautifully photographed, this cookbook includes full menus, recipes for the grill, for picnics, for leisurely breakfasts and abundant desserts. Directions are easy and there are even tips like how to host a wine tasting.

Breads include corn bread to Italian Bread Salad, breakfast treats feature Easy Berry pancakes, Baked French Toast Casserole and Strawberry Streusel muffins. Desserts ranging from peanut butter and chocolate chunk cookies to frozen Sangria Pops to Baby Pineapples filled with Pineapple Sherbet.

For entrees, you can choose anything from Marinated Pepper Crusted Beef Tenderloin and Jalapeño Cheeseburgers, to Grilled Chicken and Pesto Clubs, or Southwestern Chicken Bundles.

Ah- then there is fish and seafood. There is a great section titled the Seafood Primer - and describes everything, with recommended cooking techniques, from catfish to caviar to wild salmon. Try the Broiled Clams in Herb Butter, Grilled Alaskan Halibut with Avocado Lime Sauce, or Crab Bisque, Crab Cakes or Crab Rolls. As you can imagine, seafood is covered extensively.

So in this book there really is something for everyone.

This is on my `recommended' list for sure!

Not only are there lots of delicious recipes (I especially like the plank fish recipes), but this cookbook also offers a lot in the way of tips, such as identifying the types of fish, telling how to select seafood, etc. It's really a great resource for anyone who loves seafood.

I have a lot of cooking books and this one is one of the best. The recipes are simple and absolutely delicious. It's a must have in your cookbook collection.

I also bought simple and simply delicious by Sylvie Rocher. Those 2 books are on the top of my favorites

I love to cook!
I also love a good cookbook and know one when I see one. And this is one!!! I have over 300 cookbooks in my collection.
If you long for the sea, to be near the smell and the sounds of the ocean this book will help you get there at least in your mind. This book is full of wonderful well tested recipes that my family loves. I have yet to try one that hasn't been a complete hit. Photos are beautiful and will surely get you in the mood to be near the coast and try some wonderful dishes.
Some of our favorites;
Crusin' Crap Dip, Spiced Shrimp Zapala, Romas and Goat Cheese, Artichoke Cakes with Cajun Remoulade, Vandy's Butter-Braised Oysters, Northwest Clam Chowder with Oyster Mushrooms, Butternut Squash Empanadas, Balsamic Glazed Scallops, Molasses Pork Tenderloin with Red Wine Sauce, Asian Glazed Cornish Hens, Mussel Soup with Saffron and Cream, Garlicky Green Beans, Hawaiian Pineapple Gazpacho, Italian Club Sandwich, Grilled Rib Eye Steak with Crispy Gongonzola Crust and Grilled Scallions and the list goes on and on and on!!
The book is very well laid out with sections on Coastal Pantry Favorites, Coastal Kitchen Tools, Stock a Party Closet, Coastal Entertaining Ideas, All About Fish and Shellfish, Metric Equivalents and my favorite, a section called Favorite Recipe Journal where you can write down the recipe, Source/page and remarks.
This book really is loaded with everything and if you long to be by the sea this book is a must!!

I have owned this cookbook for about 3 years. Recently, I bought another copy for my aunt. The recipes come from restaurants across the country and feature regional seafood specialties, featuring fresh ingredients with emphasis on seafood. Of all the cookbooks I own, this contains the most (and best) seafood recipes, although it is not exclusively limited to seafood. There are sections on party planning and shopping tips. I also like the appetizer section, and use it frequently. The photos are very lovely, so I often keep the book on display in my cookbook stand in the kitchen. It's a great addition to your collection (although it should not be your first/only cookbook) and makes a good gift for someone with similar interests.

This is one of the most beautiful and comprehensive coastal cookbooks that I have ever seen. I originally ordered this to leave in my beach house on Hatteras Island as I try to leave fun kitchen surprises for our summer renters (believe it or not, we get just as many compliments on our well-stocked kitchen as we do about our ocean views!) My first thought was that this was too lovely to leave out, but after reading it it, I quickly decided that this just too perfect of a cookbook for vacationers who love to cook for family and friends, so on the shelf at the beach house it goes. As I decided I can't live without this in my home kitchen, I am ordering another one for myself!
