Fish and Seafood

Fresh fish, shrimp, crab and lobster taste like the ocean, with a briny sweetness that's meant to be enhanced, not overpowered -- so the best recipes keep things light. When you're buying seafood, seek out firm flesh, bright eyes, and above all, that clean, sweet scent of the sea (yes, we're suggesting you smell the fish before you buy). Then, once you bring it home, well ... leave it alone. Sure, sprinkle it with a bit of fresh lemon juice, a drizzle of clarified butter, and some fragrant fresh herbs. Even hearty fish and/or clam chowders are straightforward, with fish stock and heavy cream creating a rich base for the seafood. Because fresh fish should always be the star of the show - treat it like a diva.
