While this cookbook may at first glance appear to be regional, it's chock full of information that is beneficial to anyone interested in cooking seafood. Gloria Daniels leaves nothing out of her cookbook,
Favorite Fish and Seafood Recipes from the Coast of Maine. The cover is eye-catching and it's refreshing to see a cookbook that has color and vibrancy. It's easy to read and the font and layout are very nice. Not only does the book have many great recipes, such as tuna pate, clams casino, pasta shrimp salad, oyster bisque, and a host of others, it has plenty of stuffing and other recipes. Daniels explains how to buy whole fish, fillets, and steaks as well as how to store them. This section alerted me to many things I didn't know and I will certainly be a smarter seafood shopper now.

Daniels explains how to bake, poach, and broil fish and how to deep fry as well. There is a section on cooking lobster. While she doesn't provide instructions as to how to eat a lobster, she does mention that there are some good instructional videos on YouTube. There are tips for steaming clams, and other preparation and cooking tips that make this cookbook go beyond the ordinary. Daniels covers battering and breading and she includes recipes for batter in the book. I found this information very useful. Each of the recipes is written in a clear and concise manner so that even the inexperienced seafood cook can follow with ease. Gloria Daniels includes everything you need to know about cooking seafood and there is little, if anything, that isn't covered in her book.
