No Fish Recipes!
on January 1, 2012
I'm off on a 2 week sailing adventure in the Caribbean (my 1st!) and bought this book so I'd be of some use in the galley. The book was originally written for campers/backpackers. The forward has been re-written to include stove types and cooking techniques on a boat. However, other than the forward, I assume none of the recipes have been changed from the original version as there are no fish recipes! There is a cooking chart at the front of the book that gives cooking times for fish and shellfish but among the recipes there is not a single seafood recipe. Several of the recipes could probably be re-worked to use fish instead of poultry or beef but the author offers no suggestions on how to do this. Now, as a newcomer to the sailing world, perhaps I am naïve but I'm expecting fish to be a major food source on this trip. Even near shore I expect we will find it easier to purchase seafood than Cornish game hens. The recipes that are in the book look yummy but I sure won't be taking this book on our trip.
