What’s Cooking @ HEPL: Ep 07

By: Heidi Herald

The New York Times Seafood Cookbook

Welcome back to What’s Cooking @ HEPL! I am Heidi Herald, a Public Services Librarian at Hamilton East Public Library. I will be reviewing one of the library’s cookbooks each month. To celebrate the 2022 Summer Reading theme—Oceans of Possibilities—I selected a classic seafood cookbook to try. I really enjoyed the recipes I tried from The New York Times Seafood Cookbook. The cookbook offers a wide array of recipes for all kinds of seafood. Due to budget and other restraints, I selected fish recipes to try.

Wok-Cooked Fish
I really enjoyed the Wok-Cooked Fish and Napa Cabbage with Chilies. It was very flavorful and spicy!

Thai Fish Cakes
Thai Fish Cakes (Tod Mun Pla) is pictured to the left. This is served with sweet peanut-chili dipping sauce. It was delicious!

Broiled Halibut
This dish below is intended to be made with halibut. However, I substituted flounder to bring down the cost. Broiled Halibut (Flounder) with Miso Glaze is pictured here. It is served with bok choy and steamed rice.

Finally, in the video below I make White Bean, Fennel, and Tuna Salad – a healthy, super easy, and delicious recipe!

I hope you will borrow The New York Times Seafood Cookbook from our library collections! It is available in print. Happy Eating!
