Jacques Pepin's Easy and Elegant Seafood Recipes | Essential Pepin | KQED

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Jacques Pepin begins the step-by-step recipe with the supreme crustacean, Lobster in Artichoke Hearts. This sets the tone for a show filled with wonderful gifts from the sea. He explains that shrimp is now one of the most consumed seafoods in the country and Shrimp Pané on Watercress is a recipe to make them shine. Jacques used to make Escoffier Quenelles when working with Pierre Franey at the Le Pavillon in New York and now makes them for us using a food processor to make light work of the task. Finally, he waxes poetic on the virtues of one of the ugliest fishes in the sea and makes Monkfish Roulade stuffed full of broccoli rabe.

Ponte Vedra says:

I see that years ago you cooked 'a la Frances'….. Very nice. Sad that you no longer cook this way chef. I grew up with Escoffier ( Argentina) . In my country that is all, well about all, we followed. Merci Chef Pepin.
Tres belle.

Jacques has a quiet but devoted fanbase, and I'm one of them.

Lester Scrugs says:

What I learned: Artichoke is basically useless for a food source.

victoria milonas says:

I never saw the point of quenelles or croquettes. Baby food for the very rich. But M. Pepin makes it seem an easy and elegant way of combining types of fish that can't be the stars

Paul Wagner says:

To use the name Escoffier in a program in the early 21st Century. Jacques is truly the King of cooking.

Miles Dyson says:
