Oh wow, that monkfish is creepy!! I don't know that I've ever seen one staring at me like that :) The finished dish looks great though - glad you enjoyed it!


It's very impressive and inspiring how you're taking on the challenge of making all these different dishes!

The Duo Dishes

LOVE corn dogs. Like the processed meat kind. :) But this is a grown folks way to graduate from 5 yr old food to something a bit more sophisticated. Cutting up that monkfish though? Ack!!!


Well, that looks interesting!!! I have had fried squid but never monk fish. HUMMM!


Holy cow - that fish scared me.

But cut to the second picture, when it's on the plate - mmmmmm.


I know what you mean about things that look unappetizing!

Did you happen to see Iron Chef on Food TV when the secret ingredient was octopus!

Eww!! I wouldn't have been able to even touch it, let alone cut its legs off!

Your mongfish however looks great after its cooked!!


Mango ketchup? That one is new to me. Bookmarked this.


The final product looks good! I'm not sure if I would have been able to even buy the monkfish, much less grate it on a cheese grater!


I think it looks lovely! I love monkfish, it's one of my favorites. I wish I had seen that episode.


You've never had a corn dog?? wow. I've never had monkfish. It looks scary. How cool that you are challenging yourself.


The octopus and the monkfish in their uncooked, unplated state look terrifying! But the corn dogs look delicious.

phyllis (me HUNGRY!)

Haha - I remember this episode of Top Chef and those monkey dogs!! What an unfortunate looking fish, quite tasty though. Very clever that you used a grater to grind the fish. And I can't believe you've never had a corndog!! One of life's guiltiest pleasures, get yourself to a carnival or Nathan's ASAP!

You are very brave to recreate this one :) I would love to try this too. I actually have been cooking quite a lot with monkfish lately and getting to really like it.

About your question re: Kurobuta - I got it at Wegmans but one of the comments was a recommendation of Preferred Meats: 1-800-397-6328.


I have never try monk fish. The pictures does demonstrate that is is a tasty and filling fish.I have to try it sometimes.

Thanks for sharing your recipe :)

Go get yourself a nice corn dog :)
and walk the park. Enjoy!

Oh, how I miss Stephen; season one of "Top Chef" was the best (I still watch DVDs of it sometimes). That looks like some great fried goodness!


Yes, you have to use the word "fishmonger" whenever you have the opportunity. You are a brave woman to tackle the Top Chef recipes! But, I bet you'll be quite a different chef, yourself, once you're on the other side of the challenge.

I found you on TasteSpotting and am writing to say that if you have any photos that aren’t accepted there, I’d love to publish them. Visit my new site (below), it’s a lot of fun! I hope you will consider it.



Very fun that you are doing this. We did monkfish for Whisk and could not find it...on the endangered list so since it was "poor man's lobster," I think that was the choice of sub...I made the recipe several times since then. I love these Top Chef posts, and I have no doubt you will be there one day!


Looks delicious! And, the mango ketchup sounds great with this.


"Grated the monkfish with a cheese grater." I'm sorry, but I'm going to have to say "eeeewww" to that, HOWEVER...the end result looks mighty scrumptious. Great job & daring cook! *applause*
