Monkfish "Lobster" Rolls
Monkfish Roll

Change up the American northeast classic with a sweet, meaty monkfish twist. Whether you are team butter or team mayo when it comes to the traditional lobster roll, monkfish has a similar taste and texture to lobster tails and is known for its versatility and nutritional properties. 

To get the right temperatures and save time, place the cooked cooked and cooled monkfish in the refrigerator while you're chopping the other ingredients. This gives you that delicious contrast: warm and buttery toasted buns with the cool and refreshing monkfish salad.
