The primitive looking Monkfish, with its huge, gaping mouth and spines, is deceptively delicious! Many compare it to Lobster, the tail yielding a dense, firm and boneless meat, with a mild, sweet taste.

Fun Fact

The Monkfish gets its name from the cowl-like appearance of its head.

Product Preparation

Monkfish is extremely versatile, so feel free to bake, roast and grill it. Also try it in chowders and stews, as you would Lobster. Its lean flesh does tend to dry out, so don’t overcook it.

Product Nutrition

Monkfish may be ugly, but it’s a beautiful source of Niacin, Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12 and Potassium, and a very good source of protein, Phosphorus and Selenium.
