There are two little gland type items along the spine.

What are they and what does one do with them? It's the first time I've seen them.

Nice! ;)

BTW, the monk fish and liver were very tasty. A little salt and pepper, sauteed in clarified butter with some thyme. If nothing else, gave me an excuse to use my deba. I love how sharp white gets.

Tried butter poaching some scallops for the fist time, I like them better with a sear.

what you ate in that picture was not the liver. The liver on monk fish looks similar to foie gras and has a whitish pink color and silky velvety texture. It is not attached to the area shown here. What you ate is most likely the monk fishes gonads. here are some monkfish liver pics.
