The Taste of Gloucester

The Taste of Gloucester cookbook was created by the Gloucester Fishermen's Wives and the Cape Ann League of Women Voters to share recipes of lesser known species of fish as well as familiar ones.
The recipes are drawn from tradition and are variations of ethnic specialties for different occasions.

The original purpose of The Taste of Gloucester cookbook was to develop interest in these other fish to help the local fleet diversify its catch and reduce fishing pressure on popular fish like cod, haddock and yellowtail flounder. More than 100,000 copies of the cookbook have been sold.

The eighth edition offers new gourmet recipes for species which remain plentiful in Northwest Atlantic waters such as Atlantic herring, Atlantic mackerel and others.

Here are some sample recipes from The Taste of Gloucester cookbook.
