Steamed Ginger Scallion Monkfish

Monk fish used to be this shit fish that was brought up with the trawlers catch that the fisherman would eat as they couldn’t sell the ugly thing, plus it is relatively hard to “clean” … then people started to realize that that shit tasted great. It’s kinda like lobster, but a quarter of the work. It has a light sweet taste and a firm texture that lends itself well to steaming.
