One Great ... sauce with seafood

From Kathleen Purvis’ blog I’ll Bite, at

Don’t be fooled by the subtitle of the new book “Good Catch: Recipes & Stories Celebrating the Best of Florida’s Waters.”

Yes, the book (by Pam Brandon, Katie Farmand and Heather McPherson, an old friend and food editor of the Orlando Sentinel) does have a Florida focus. But shrimp there are not that different from shrimp here. The book is packed with great ideas even if the closest you get to fresh fish is the glass case at the supermarket.

One of my favorite chapters is “Year-Round Sauces and Accessories.” Using something like this sauce as a dip for shrimp or as a base for a salad with leftover fish is a great catch.
