Monkfish

Photos did not transfer. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Um, yes.

Remember me telling you about that delicious dinner I had last Friday night?  The monkfish dinner?

Well, my blend, Chris, asked me if I had ever seen one before.  I hadn’t, so I Googled it up last night.

“In Europe and North America, the texture of the tail meat of fish is sometimes compared to lobster tail and has been alluded to as the “poor man’s lobster”, although today it commands prices equivalent to, and in some cases exceeding, lobster and other marine delicacies.” (source)

I agree with the comparison to lobster tail.  It’s quite mild and very tasty.  I’m an adventurous eater, but if I would’ve seen this beast before I ate it, I doubt I ever would’ve.

Those teeth.  Those eyes.

Everything.

Prehistoric looking, isn’t it?

So, while I definitely stick to my opinion of it tasting quite delicious, I’m not sure it’s something that I will eat again.

What is one of the strangest thing you’ve tried?
Think you’ll ever give monkfish a try?
