Ingredient of the day is Monkfish

Growing in about 3 to 5 feet, this black skinned fish is something that might appear scary to people in more than one way. When in reality it has a lot to offer. This bottom dwelling fish can be found lurking in the coastal Atlantic Sea. Providing its liver and muscular tail as the only edible portions. As peculiar as the fish appears, monkfish has dense flesh that is sweet and similar to lobster meat in both flavor and texture. However this fish is also filled with B vitamins, protein, and low in cholesterol.

A true delightful change to the everyday salmon. I highly recommend it!

Happy Cooking!
