Poor Man's Lobster? OMG! What Did I Do Wrong? Monkfish Disaster!

kernel | Mar 2, 2010 06:17 AM

Now I know monkfish will never win a beauty contest when seen in its natural habitat, but the beautiful fillets nicely priced seemed worth a try. and reasearch said it was a popular fish in Europe-poor man's lobster. We broiled it and basted it with butter/garlic and were sure not to overcook. It had no taste and an offesive rubbery texture. Anyone know what we did wrong or was it the purchase itself that was the error?
