The Little Cornish FISH AND SEAFOOD Cookbook: Fish and seafood with sides, salads, and soups with a Cornish twist. 70+ recipes. By Beatriz Treloar.

From Beatriz Treloar, the exciting young female head chef at Seafood on Stilts restaurant by the sea in St Ives, Cornwall comes a collection of recipes with a focus on fish and seafood in this new cookbook. As Beatriz says:

“This food features largely in our restaurants, but it was influenced by my growing up on a coastal farm near Zennor, west of St Ives in Cornwall. This little book has seafood, fish, soups, sides, salads and “free-from” recipes. I have started with a focus on seafood as that is where my heart lies and what I love to cook.”

“In the restaurant we always include a couple of “non fish” choice on the menu for those who don’t eat fish and I have included a few in this book. Plus some “unfishy” soups and sides and Early Bird breakfast options, as we all like variety in our lives.”
With 70+ easy to follow recipes and variations, try a little taste of Cornwall.

The book’s sections are Mains, Early Bird breakfasts, From the Grill, Soups and Sides, Sauces and Salads, and Gluten Free Baking.

The clearly laid out recipes include Monkfish and tomato curry with prawns, Crab fishcakes with variations, Shell-poached scallops with ginger soy and Parma ham, Fish pasty with cod or haddock, Haddock chilli scramble, Sorrel omelette, Christmas Eve barbequed seabass with vanilla, tomato and basil, Mackerel stuffed with orange and fennel, Crab and watercress soup, Spicy Cornish seafood chowder, Mussels poached in cider with chorizo thyme and leek, and Italian seafood paste.

Beatriz Treloar is the exciting young head chef at Seafood on Stilts in St Ives, who first appears in the second DI Treloar Cornish crime thriller, the award-winning Broken Dove by L A Kent.She is the youngest of DI Félipe Treloar’s three sisters.
