Taking the intimidation out of cooking seafood

By Joe Gurrera, the owner of Citarella markets, New York’s most respected seafood authority



My cookbook is an intro to choosing, prepping and serving seafood.  I put it together in a way that everyone from the beginner to the expert can learn the basics of sourcing and cooking fish. 








JOE KNOWS FISH focuses on the very best tried-and-true fish and seafood recipes, with fast and simple preparations that call for the very freshest ingredients. Included are a handful of classic sauces and some of Joe’s favorite side dishes — to complement the natural flavor of the fresh fish. This collection includes time-honored favorites like Crispy Fried Calamari, Spaghetti Vongole, and Baked Clams along with modern dishes such as Grilled Whole Branzino and Fluke Tartare.

With Joe as their trustworthy guide, home cooks and professional chefs will turn to JOE KNOWS FISH again and again as a new kitchen staple and go-to guide for how to cook seafood right.
