Atlantic Monkfish
New Zealand Monkfish

The monkfish is also called the anglerfish. It has a unique texture and flavor. The slightly chewy texture and mild flavor with a slight sweetness has made it very popular and earned it the nickname "poor man's lobster." It is native to the Mediterranean and both sides of the Atlantic and averages 10 pounds in weight. The tail section of this fish is the most important part, yielding two fillets/loins, one on each side of a cartilaginous structure. As the nickname implies, this meat may be substituted in dishes where lobster is usually required.
