Almost Lobster Tail

COOK TIME
25 Min

Who can resist the rich taste of lobster? Unfortunately, it's a bit on the pricey side, so we've got just the solution! Some call it "poor man's lobster," but we call it another way to say "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!"

What You'll Need:
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 (6-ounce) monkfish fillets
  • 1 tablespoon plain bread crumbs
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a small bowl, combine butter, paprika, salt, and pepper; mix well. Place fish on a baking sheet and brush evenly with butter mixture. Sprinkle bread crumbs evenly down center of fish fillets.
     
  3. Bake 15 to 17 minutes, or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Serve immediately.
     
Notes

Monkfish can be found in most fish stores and supermarket fish departments. If you don't see it, ask for it.  A big baked potato will round out this meal, and don't forget extra melted butter for dipping the fish!

I used to work at a restaurant in Rice, Minnesota, that sold this as "Poor Man's Lobster" and it was one of the most popular items on the menu!

actually , years ago we made poor mans lobster with haddock. It really tasted like lobster, not quite as rich but very good. We were in the military and could not afford lobster. I grew up on seafood.

thank you, I can never remember the repacement for lobstr. We pearch for shrimp. Ok, but not as good as the real thing.

sorry for the mis-spelling. Computer is not working right this am. I'm ready to toss it.

Sounds really good

IF THERE IS NO MONKFISH WHAT OTHER FISH MAY I USE

HALIBUT,

Cod

Northern Pike we cook in a similar way but with some sprite or 7-up added to it :)
