They call monkfish the poor man's lobster, but at $9.99 per pound, I'm not sure that is the nickname I would have come up with for it. But baking it and eating it with a lemon butter sauce does make a great substitute. And it is simple to do, add some garlic, paprika, and butter then bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
The filet is always a winner, and just as easy to cook. Marinate in some Dale's sauce and rub with some garlic pepper. Asparagus went great with this meal. While it was on the expensive side, this truly was a meal for a special occasion. Still cheaper than any nice meal out, and without a doubt just as tasty as anything you could expect to get anywhere - and the cooking was easy. It was planned for Saturday, but didn't happen till today. Now it is time to go make some desert, something we normally do without.
