Substitute for Monk Fish
- Fee Feb 10, 2009 06:42 PM
I have a fantastic recipe "Lotte L'Americaine" which calls for Monkfish or losbster what can I substitute it with, a firm meaty fish - I am in Australia..........
I'm with Kilted Cook. Monkfish used to be called the "poor man's lobster." Clearly that was before it became so expensive. :-) Australia has some great lobster so if it's not prohibitively expensive I'd opt for that. If you can't swing either monkfish or lobster my next choices would be langostinos or prawns
