Curing and Smoking Fish provides all the information needed to understand the entire process of preparing and smoking fish. The subject of making brines is covered in detail and simplified by advocating the use of brine tables and testers. We don’t want the reader to blindly follow recipes, we want him to create them - this is the approach that has been taken by the authors. Fish can be dry salted or immersed in brine; salt can be applied alone or with sugar and spices; brine can be weak or strong; fish can be cold or hot smoked; wood chips can be dry or wet. There are many parameters to consider. To a newcomer, this can become confusing; however, all these details are mentioned and explained in such a way that the reader will feel confident to take control of the process. Master the basics, but not be afraid to apply this knowledge in real applications. Additionally, smoking methods are thoroughly described, as well as proper design of basic smokehouses. The discussion is not only limited to fish, but also covers shellfish such as clams, mussels, oysters and shrimp. To get the reader started, there is a collection of recipes for smoking fish, making fish spreads and preparing sauces for serving fish.

In the West, we have identified only four basic tastes—sour, sweet, salty, and bitter—that, through skillful combination and technique, create delicious foods. Yet in many parts of East Asia over the past century, an additional flavor has entered the culinary lexicon: umami, a fifth taste impression that is savory, complex, and wholly distinct. Combining culinary history with recent research into the chemistry, preparation, nutrition, and culture of food, Mouritsen and Styrbæk encapsulate what we know to date about the concept of umami, from ancient times to today. Umami can be found in soup stocks, meat dishes, air-dried ham, shellfish, aged cheeses, mushrooms, and ripe tomatoes, and it can enhance other taste substances to produce a transformative gustatory experience. Researchers have also discovered which substances in foodstuffs bring out umami, a breakthrough that allows any casual cook to prepare delicious and more nutritious meals with less fat, salt, and sugar. The implications of harnessing umami are both sensuous and social, enabling us to become more intimate with the subtleties of human taste while making better food choices for ourselves and our families. This volume, the product of an ongoing collaboration between a chef and a scientist, won the Danish national Mad+Medier-Prisen (Food and Media Award) in the category of academic food communication.
The first edition of this unique book combined an outlining and updating of the traditional areas of fish processing technology with detailed descriptions of important new areas of work. This fully revised and updated edition continues to provide coverage of modern aspects of traditional processes, and highly practical descriptions of important new areas. All the chapters which have been kept from the first edition have been brought up-to-date, and there are four new chapters on: methods of identifying fish species; modified atmosphere packaging of fish; aspects of quality and HACCP in fish processing and temperature modeling in fish transportation.Written as an overview of the field for industrialists in developed countries wishing to improve or diversify their operation and for those teaching this aspect of food science and technology, the book is also of proven value to workers in developing countries which are expanding their fish processing industries to earn important foreign currency.

Microbial agents (particularly bacteria) represent the greatest risk to public health. This issue is addressed in the text along with evaluation of modern, risk-based prevention approaches that are considered as the only effective way to reduce the prevalence of these hazards from our foods.
This book seeks to address the challenges facing the international seafood industry via a two pronged approach: by offering the latest information on established technologies and introducing new ideas and technologies. An introductory chapter sets the tone for the book by presenting the background against which fish processing will exist in the near future. Chapter two looks at the environmental and sustainability issues relating to conventional fish processing, including processing efficiency and better use of the outputs currently considered wastes. The impact of mechanisation and computerisation on environmental sustainability is also addressed. Subsequent chapters examine the latest developments in established fish processing technologies such as canning, curing, freezing and chilling, with an emphasis on the environmental aspects of packaging and the process itself. In addition, quality and processing parameters for specific species, including new species, are described. The second part of the book gives authors the opportunity to introduce the potential technologies and applications of the future to a wider audience. These include fermented products and their acceptance by a wider audience; the utilisation of fish processing by-products as aquaculture feeds; and the use of by-products for bioactive compounds in biomedical, nutraceutical, cosmetic and other applications.

"I could not have written A Cook's Tour without this book. There is so much I would have missed. So dig in. Enjoy… Eat. Eat adventurously. Miss nothing. It's all here in these pages." —From the Foreword by Anthony Bourdain Sit down for a meal with the locals on six continents—what they are eating may surprise you. Extreme Cuisine examines eating habits across the globe, showing once and for all that one man's road kill is another man's delicacy! "I've tried to make this book a guide to how the other half dines and why. Over a period of twenty-five years I've augmented my meat-and-potatoes upbringing in the United States to try a wide variety of regional specialties, from steamed water beetles, fried grasshoppers and ants, to sparrow, bison and crocodile. I've eaten deep-fried bull's testicles in Mexico, live shrimp sushi in Hawaii, mice cooked over an open wood fire in Thailand, pig stomach soup in Singapore, minced water buffalo and yak butter tea in Nepal, stir-fried dog tongue, and "five penis wine" in China." —From the introduction by Jerry Hopkins Dive headfirst into food culture from around the world. Join author Jerry Hopkins on a culinary and cultural tour as he explores foods that may seem bizarre, and often off-putting, to us. As he says, "What is considered repulsive to someone in one part of the world, in another part of the world is simply considered lunch." Part travelogue, part cultural commentary and history, and part cookbook (yes, really), with Extreme Cuisine anyone can become an adventurous eater—or at least learn what it's like to be one.
