The SALTBOX SEAFOOD Story
Located in Durham, NC Saltbox Seafood Joint is redefining what seafood is in an urban area. Chef Ricky Moore drew inspiration from the classic American fish camps and waterside seafood shacks, placing an emphasis on local, fresh seafood. He's created a Triangle staple so popular the Joint expanded in late 2017 to two locations.
Chef & Proprieter Ricky Moore
With over 20 years of fine dining restaurant experience, owner and chef Ricky Moore believes that ordinary, simple food can be extraordinary when executed at the highest level.
In sixty recipes that celebrate Ricky Moore’s coastal culinary heritage, Moore instructs cooks how to prepare Saltbox Seafood Joint dishes. This cookbook, written with K. C. Hysmith, explains how to pan-fry and deep-fry, grill and smoke, and cook up soups, chowders, stews, and grits and seafood. Moore has taken pity on us and even included the recipe for his famous Hush-Honeys®, an especially addictive hushpuppy. Charts and illustrations in the book explain the featured types, availability, and cuts of fish and shellfish used in the recipes.
