Who would’ve thought to cook a meal with Monkfish? I did! Haha!
While I was out with a client, my hot husband was at Whole Foods shopping. He texted, “How about Monkfish?”
I said “Sure!” with excitement. I love experimenting with new fish. We usually buy the fish of the day, and this was literally the “special” for the day. Curious about this fish, I looked it up online and this is what I saw …
I was horrified needless to say, but somehow I managed to make this weird, creature taste good. We tried our best to enjoy it, but this flashing image kept popping up as I took each bite. I thought to myself, I can’t believe I’m eating this, but I played it off well! I’m tough, I can eat anything!
I’m not going to share the recipe, though. I don’t think you would enjoy taking the membrane off of this fish’s tail, AND I really don’t think I would cook it again, but I thought the story was fun to share!
Ugly tastes pretty good served with red pepper and polenta!!
