has anyone had a great monkfish entree in seattle ?
I had it for the first time several years ago in Norway, and haven't forgotten how fabulous it was... bought some frozen chunks and tried to recreate, but it was ugh...

    Tim's Seafood in Kirland's Parkplace carries monkfish when they can get it. It's also known as the "working girl's lobster". Simply delicious if prepared correctly.

          I think monkfish is also called black cod? Try Ray's Boathouse, they are great with any fish.

            Nope, sablefish is black cod.

              You can buy it from H-Mart.

              Then learn to cook it yourself. Earn yourself some cred!

              Or eat the liver (ankimo) at Fuji Sushi (or some other sushi joint, but i like Fuji). But as far as the whole fish goes, it's been harder to order. My favorite Korean restaurants sometimes have it, but don't order it when it's not at its most popular.

              And enough with the Seafoodwatch.org links, people. Did the OP ask for that? Nope.
