She’s done it again! Daytona Strong has published her second cookbook this year, titled The Pescatarian Cookbook for Beginners: 75 Recipes to Kickstart Your Healthy Lifestyle. Strong writes about her transition to a mostly pescatarian lifestyle (fish as the main protein instead of red meat or poultry) and offers a variety of recipes to show how delicious and satisfying it can be. 

The book is divided into three sections: A primer on what it means to be a pescatarian, how to stock your pantry and kitchen for pescatarian success, followed by 75 recipes for every occasion.

Strong was the Taste of Norway Editor for The Norwegian American from 2015 to 2019 and is the voice of the celebrated Scandinavian blog Outside Oslo. This new cookbook features many Scandinavian-inspired recipes, from Creamy Scandinavian Fish Soup, Broiled Mussels with Dill Butter, to Norwegian Nicoise Salad, not to mention Orange-Cardamom Caramels and Autumn Fruit Soup. 

I’ve been a fan of Strong’s thoughtfully crafted recipes for years, and this cookbook is full of inspiring recipes to try.

The Pescatarian Cookbook for Beginners: 75 Recipes to Kickstart Your Healthy Lifestyle is published by Rockridge Press and is available at your favorite bookseller or online. You can learn more about Daytona Strong’s work at her blog,
