Fish Livers and Other Bits

bigmackdaddy Feb 5, 2011 12:07 PM

I'm pretty much looking for a fish monger anywhere in NYC, who sells raw/fresh fish liver. I have come to love the stuff. Especially whole cod livers. Blue Moon is good for monkfish liver and some fish heads, but they won't get me other species. I'd also like to know how to cook said livers. I tried pan frying monkfish liver and ended up discovering alchemy.

    My local Japanese place carries cooked monkfish liver (and cod milt), but I've never seen any other fish livers sold anywhere. However, you have to be careful with some kinds of fish livers- they carry very high amounts of vitamin A, enough to be toxic.

      Thank you for the heads-up. I really never thought of it that way. Usually, I equated toxic flesh with the liver, such as fugu, but you make sense.
