The mighty, meaty fish can sub in for steak or pork

Monkfish is like the steak of the sea. It has a dense, meaty texture and is very rich on the palate. This version has a hint of sweetness from the glaze. Serve it with some spicy sautéed bok choy for a great contrast.

Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

3 tablespoons balsamic glaze*
1/4 cup olive oil
4 (6 ounce) fillets monkfish, boneless, skinless
Directions: 
  1. Place the monkfish between 2 sheets of parchment paper and gently pound with a meat tenderizer. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the 1/4 cup olive oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Place the monkfish in the pan and cook until golden, about 4 minutes. Turn and cook for another 3 to 4 minutes. Remove from the heat and brush both sides with the balsamic glaze.

*Balsamic glaze is available in most grocery stores and specialty food stores in the same section as the other vinegars. If you can’t locate it you can make a balsamic glaze by reducing 1 cup of balsamic vinegar to 1/4 cup.
