Dig • Shuck • Shake : Fish & Seafood Recipes from the Pacific Northwest
Written by chef, John Nelson, “Dig Shuck Shake” shows the seafood connoisseur how to get the best out of Pacific Northwest seafood. What a wonderful country we live in that these regional delights can be easily shipped by air to anywhere in less than a day. I know one of my favorite restaurants has fresh seafood flown in every morning. There is simply no reason you can’t enjoy fresh seafood even in the very center of this great land.
Nelson, “Oregon’s Salty Chef” covers everything from the basics, to local favorites and everything in between in this hardback seafood lover’s delight.

John Nelson’s stories of growing up on the docks and his practical techniques for preparing and cooking a variety of seafood in Pacific Northwest style makes this more than a recipe book. It is a snapshot of the fishing culture that resides alongside the docks of Oregon and Washington.
