Monkfish with Herb Brown Butter by Nagi
This fish may be affectionately named the "poor man's lobster", but there's certainly nothing poor about it. It's namesake came from it's similar thick texture and slightly sweet flavor, which reminds people of a lobster (just much more affordable). Nagi made this recipe more for the Brown Butter Sauce, which is a very easy sauce to make but showcases the fish and how easy it is to make a delicious dish with it. The recipe takes about 15-20 minutes to complete, start to finish, and is perfect for a quick mid-week meal.
