The Ultimate Shrimp Book
William Morrow, March, 2002.
Trade paperback, 248 pages.
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 à la King, Shrimp Mole, Shrimp Gumbo and Shrimp Etouffée, 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.
