Recipes from Chef Dean James Max


"My love of food comes from living in Florence, Italy, my technique from working with French chefs and my understanding of what freshness is all about from growing up on a farm in Virginia."

Considering his position as one of South Florida's foremost seafood provocateurs, it's not surprising to discover that Chef Dean James Max, owner of DJM Restaurants (formerly of 3030 Ocean at the Marriott Harbour Beach Resort) grew up on small farm just minutes from the rich shores of Virginia's Chesapeake Bay.

The following recipes are excerpts from his cookbook, A Life by the Sea. Chef Max sources his seafood from Francesca's Favorites purveyor, and now you can create these sophisticated yet simple creations in your own home. Print or download the recipe and order your fresh fish today.
