This week's Cook the Book recipes are from The Young Man and the Sea, the cookbook I wrote with Dave Pasternack, the chef-partner of Esca, a southern Italian seafood restaurant in New York City.
Dave knows more about fish and fish cooking than anyone I've ever met. I even caught my first fish, a 20-pound striped bass, with Dave's help. What's great about Dave's recipes is how much passion he brings to his food and how simple the recipes are. All you'll need to cook from The Young Man and the Sea is a good fishmonger, a grill or a fry pan, and a cold beer or a glass of wine. The first of those recipes will be along shortly.
Thanks to the good folks at Artisan House, we are giving away ten (10) copies of the book. Just tell us what your favorite fish or shellfish preparation is here in the comments section and you'll be entered to win. Winners will be chosen at random, and commenting will close at 9 p.m. ET Friday. The usual Serious Eats contest rules apply.
