Featuring favorites from the kitchens of Hog Island Oyster Bars, every conceivable method for preparing mouthwatering recipes is represented: baking, braising, steaming, roasting, deep-frying, grilling, broiling, poaching, pan-frying, marinating, curing, smoking, and pickling, as well as serving raw. With more than 200 recipes, this authoritative compendium is proof that seafood is not only delicious but also one of the easiest and most versatile proteins to prepare.
