Yes! I have. The "Herb-Crusted Alaskan Spot Prawns with Warm Mushroom-Potato Salad" on page244 is DYNAMITE- with truffle butter. I cut way back on the butter and oil in that recipe, and it was still incredible. We used some fresh Morels in season that we found, but you don't have to use those if you can't find them.

Paula, this looks wonderful -- It has "Emily" written all over it!
I actually have that cookbook, but haven't used it yet (although I've had great fun reading it ). Have you tried any of the other recipes in there?
Also- I have made the Spot prawn Wonton Salad, pg. 249-really good. BTW, I don't always use Spot prawns, as they are a short season here, so other good sized prawns will do.
The Thai Curry Scallops are yummy-p. 234.
Hot Honeyed halibut is great, on page 63
Balsamic Glazed Salmon, on page 105 is very good.
Salmon Cakes with yellow corn relish, page 116 is good.
Hot Crab and Artichoke dip, pg. 185 is very good, but I don't make it often, due to the fat content, and I really don't think it tastes nearly the same with fake mayonnaise or lowfat, so it is a once a year-if that- thing for us.
I think that's all I have tried, but I have a list of gotta try outa this book including the Lobster Medallions and Couscous Salad with Ginger Viniagrette- I'm going to make that on DH birtday, which is Valentines day!
You should try something and report back! I'd love to hear from someone else who is trying the recipes out!
