Food critic turned farmer and sustainable seafood activist Matthew Evans, along with his two best chef mates, show us how seafood should be cooked. Simple recipes that demystify everything from abalone to sea urchin, snapper to octopus. This is all about the taste of real food fresh from the sea, cooked with care and respect for the seafood populations in your part of the world.
