An exciting journey through India's coastal regions for lovers of seafood.

Fish is increasingly being recognized as a delicious and healthy alternative to meat as a source of protein. In this book, Megha Patil bring together a collection of exotic and delectable recipes which will appeal to every kind of cook - from the novice to the gourmet - and which bring out the versatility of fish.

The wide variety of recipes range from quick pan-fries and unusual snacks to luscious pulaos and scrumptious specialty seafood dishes. Though Patil's focus is on the rich tradition of seafood on the west coast, especially Maharashtra, there are also recipes from the south, east and north-eat, as well as traditional Parsi and Goan dishes.

Among the hundred-odd recipes are:

Shellfish and tomato Pulao
Fish-head tamarind curry
]Prawns with mango slivers
Sunny eggs on oysters
Crab in coconut cream
Fried spiced lampreys
Poached pomfret in feni
Squid dry masala
