I've said before that my daughter and I are allergic to shrimp, crab, lobster, and crawfish. I pretend that I wouldn't like them anyway, that they are just big searoaches. But the truth is that they look really good. I had heard the monkfish is supposed to taste like lobster. It used to be know as "poor man's lobster" back before it got popular. Now at $20-25/lb, I think it cost more than lobster. I made some ceramic lobster tails a few years back and finally found some monkfish to cook in them. (sorry about the blurry cell phone pic)



Baked with just a little garlic salt and served with lemon and butter it was pretty good. Also made some monkfish ceviche and monkfish tacos. Did it taste like lobster? How would I know? I've never tasted it Others at the table said that the taste was remarkably like lobster but the texture was not the same. Was it worth $25/lb? I'm not a big seafood fan, it was OK but frankly I'd rather have 3 pounds of steak at $8/lb instead of a pound of monkfish at $24/lb

EDIT - in case you haven't seen one before, monkfish are an ugly bastard! DC, you catch any of these?

MDM,

I have had monkfish before, and I can affirm that it does taste like lobster. Never caught one, as they live in the Atlantic on the east coast.

Funny timing on your post, I went Lobster hoop netting on Friday night and bagged a couple of bugs.



BBQ Lobster for dinner last night with potatoes Au Gratin and steamed broccoli. Tasted like monkfish.



I like your lobster dishes.

DC

Funny, I was talking to Kirby last week & I said, "Wintah", three times before he figured out I meant "Winter"!

Here's some facon and eggs with tomatoes and sautéed mushrooms, onions and arugula.


Fried tofu and greens with Japanese style broth.

Last Sunday was a typical cold and mega rainy Wisconsin fall day....which screams for "comfort food". My wife's homemade chicken and dumplings w/ "Northwoods" (a versatile Penzy's spice mix) roasted chicken breasts and fresh veggies in the trusty Le Creuset. Satisfying and not $. DC, I am very envious of your fishing excursions and the awesome fresh dishes that they become. Hell, either Coast...fresh fish rocks.

OGR,

Nice looking comfort food! It has been 80 degrees here in Santa Barbara lately, so not quite the weather for that yet.

Fresh fish is great, but dry-rubbed BBQ Memphis style ribs with a Mustard/Vinegar mop sauce are good to. This weekend's treat.

Sweet ribs DC..mouthwatering indeed. That's funny, I use mustard also...prior to rubbing. Do you make your own rub? Kim (my wife) has developed a super rub recipe. Anyway, a little warmer here and time to honor the Jewish Deli....the "New Yorker"....lean Pastrami, 1/2 of a split grilled all beef (we like Klement's---Hebrew National or Vienna Beef work well also) hot dog, Swiss Cheese, Broccoli Cole Slaw, and homemade Russian dressing...all on grilled "Breadsmith" Rye. A truly Awesome sandwich combo. OGR
