i LOVED this recipe and I loved the title. Mock Lobster, B-52s. Perfect for when you want a good meal after a tragic day at work. It's quick, it's yummy and will put you in better spirits in about 15-20 minutes at 350 degrees.

Monkfish, the poor man's lobster, according to my fish mongerer, tasted very similar to lobster almost better in my eyes. I would have never decided to make this if I had not seen the fish at at the counter. After removing the membrane from the fish i seasoned both sides with coasher salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Then put them on some parchment paper and covered them with melted butter and lemon. While they were in the oven I melted some butter and added coasher salt, pepper, garlic, oregano, and lemon to create a sauce. Then plated the fish on top of some risotto with carrots and spooned the sauce on top of that. Extremely delicious dish.

This is fantastic. I love monkfish! And it was the first time I have ever tried it. LOL I am new to cooking and eating fish, as my Dad was allergic to it and I just never learned how to cook it. Well, this recipe is sooo so very easy and this type of fish is just awesome. I love lobster, and had heard this tastes similar and it does! I didnt have paprika, so I used a little lemon pepper and served it with melted butter to dip it in and lemon wedges. Some asparagus and rice and my husband and I are still going on about dinner. I left off the breadcrumbs.
