The Ultimate Shrimp Book by Bruce Weinstein After the success of his books The Ultimate Ice Cream Book and The Ultimate Party Drinks Book, Bruce Weinstein turns his take-no-prisoners approach to shrimp, with very interesting results. Weinstein offers up 650 recipes for shrimp, from the classics such as Shrimp Remoulade, Shrimp � la King, Shrimp Mole, Shrimp Gumbo and Shrimp Etouff�e, to fusion-inspired dishes, such as Coconut Shrimp, Sesame Shrimp, Tandoori Shrimp, and Bon Bon Shrimp. For each main dish, the basic recipe is given, with a number of possible variations on the dish added at the end of the recipe. The recipes are simple to follow, and are arranged in alphabetical order -- if you know what recipe you're looking for, this is quite helpful. If not, just browse through the book until you see something that catches your fancy. This is a great, basic instruction book which is sure to come in handy whenever you have a longing for a delicious shrimp dish.
