    Monkfish - what is this?

    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.

    never had monkfish that wasn't already butchered. But doing some looking on u tube for butchering one the guy pretty much says its the liver (if I am looking at your pic. right)



    at about 2:10 it looks like he has some smaller ones.

    I'd say your monk fish is well hung

    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.
