I decided to add a Monkfish recipe to the list of fish and seafood recipes we have available on our website. I thought about many different fish recipes, but because monkfish tastes so good, the decision was easy. Monkfish is known for its tight, meaty white flesh that is often compared to lobster meat. It's not only similar to lobster in texture, but also in flavor. It has a mild, sweet flavor without a trace of fishiness. Monkfish live in the western North Atlantic, ranging from Newfoundland to North Carolina. Fishermen have also spotted the species along the coast of Barbados and in the Gulf of Mexico.
Monkfish may not look nice, but they sure taste great. Monkfish are not pretty, but cleaned and cooked, monkfish become wonderful, with a sweet flavour and firm texture that's earned them the nickname of "poor man's lobster." Here is our best recipe for monkfish, the sea's most delicious monster.
This monkfish recipe has a little twist to it. The plot is simple, I added a spicy tomato sauce that can either be served on the side, or you can drench the fish in the tomato sauce. There are many different ways to prepare monkfish and options to serve it with, but for me, and other people in our family, the addition of the tomato sauce worked a treat.
The tomato sauce compliments the sweet taste of the monkish and adds extra flavour
We hope you will enjoy this monkfish recipe as much as we did. If you did, please let us know what you think. We are happy for any feedback and use the feedback to improve our recipes.
