You have just opened a cookbook that is not like any other. Cuisine at the beach is a celebration for eating. It is summertime, cool breezes and refreshing drinks; it is barbecues and oyster roasts, with aromas of grilled food intermingling with the fresh ocean air; it is crisp veggies and aromatic herbs that have been kissed by a golden sun, fresh fish just caught from the sea. And above all-it is lean! For those who live along our coastal shores or travel to and vacation there, the recipes in this book may tantalize your memory banks with flavors and tastes from the beach; and like a breath of fresh ocean air, bring back to you associations you may have with these special places. If a trip to the shore is a rare event, then you may allow these recipes to capture you and take you on a culinary tour of our capacious coastlines. Coast to coast and shore to shore, you will be amazed that the bright fresh ingredients and full-flavored tastes which characterize these 196 recipes can be healthy and wholesome-and be so delicious too!
