Trying Monk fish for the first time. Have a simple recipe, lemon butter and wine and baking it. Anyone have other recipes . It`s supposed to taste like lobster....but so ugly. The price was right, so why not

I LOVE baked monkfish. Make sure you don't overcook it (yes, I've overcooked it myself) and it will be sweet with a wonderful texture. I've always had to pay a premium for monkfish.

You'll love it. To me, it tastes like sea bass.

Reporting back. Monk fish did not go over well. We thought it was tasteless and didn`t like the texture, was not over cooked. Well at least we tried

How did you serve it? I serve it as medallions with the lemon butter sauce drizzled (yep there's that food jargon) over it.

That is probably why I like monkfish, it is not too fishy.

Its one ugly looking fish =https://goo.gl/images/k19GYg but can be a source of nice white filets,i usually use this type of fish in seafood chowders or fish cakes as there are better options if i want just fish filets.

Monkfish USED to be delicious, and did have the texture of lobster. It was one of the first fish items I was willing to eat (I was always okay with shelllfish). That was long ago, when I suspect it was wild caught. And it was cheap because nobody knew what it was.

Now, it's been put on the 'red zone' list and supposedly has lots of mercury. Hence, it's expensive and hard to find. I haven't had it in years (due to the price.)

Monk fish is absolutely delicious. I like to cut it into medallions and put in my paella. It's also really nice steamed with onions and white wine in a cataplana.
