Atul Kochhar applies a simple but distinctive touch to more than 100 fish dishes in this innovative new cookbook. Tandoori-Style Salmon, Seared Scallops with a Lively Mint Dressing, and Sea Bass in Coconut Milk and Ginger sauce are just a few of the uniquely skewered dishes on show. His celebrated take on battered fish with mushy peas is included—John Dory wrapped in a batter spiked with turmeric, ginger, masala, and mango powder; peas flavored with asatoelida, and ketchup substituted for a grilled tomato chutney. It’s typical of the book—a traditional dish transformed by an Indian twist. All of Kochhar’s recipes showcase wonderful ways to present fish bursting with new and exciting flavors. Packed with exotic but simple recipes from one of the most exciting Indian chefs working today, this book also features stunning food photography.
