I am not a cook, but what I know about monkfish is that it more or less is a substitute for eirher  lobster or scallops back home- I forget which.

It’s sometimes called "the poor man’s lobster." The texture is somewhat similar.

BTW, the plus side of setting off the smoke alarms is that I replaced them all earlier this spring due to how old they were, so now I know they all work properly.  :lol:  (Not that my wife would view that as a plus. All three were going off and they were quite loud.)

Perhaps you could give the Nats some tips - they don't appear to have any ideas what to do with fish, this season... ;)

I used to have a ritual of "eating the enemy" before Patriot games in the 1980s. A filet of fish before the dolphins, a fast food hamburger before Colts and Broncos (because the burgers probably were horsemeat), etc... Maybe time to find some gamefish before the next Marlins game

The next 3 games are easy but what to do on Friday?

The sous chef at the last restaurant I worked at (Old Glory in Georgetown) was a fan of the Pittsburgh rare steak, charred on the outside and nearly raw on the inside. That'd probably work with horsemeat.

That makes me think of a post I made in the 2018 edition of this thread in which I quoted the following that was posted on another forum. I still haven’t tried this.

Quote from: sparker
My grandfather, a Greek immigrant; had his own way (apparently common in Greece) for cooking steaks:  Get a NY cut, at least 1.25" thick, trim it down.  Pat olive oil onto both sides and coat it liberally with coarse cracked black pepper & oregano; plate it and put it into the refrigerator overnight.  Cooking:  Take a chunk of bacon, put it in a big iron skillet, and render it down so it's just a bubbling liquid at the bottom of the skillet.  Get it so hot the bacon fat is bubbling and cracking; take the steaks out and cook them in the skillet for about 15-30 seconds (depending upon how hot you can get your stovetop) on either side, run them around the edges of the skillet to sear the sides, and serve them. 

Sorry to all you well-done fans, but these will invariably be charred on the outside and quite rare in the middle (this method doesn't lend itself to overcooking!).  Outside of a couple of Midwest steak houses, these were the best steaks I ever ate!  If you dare (and don't have a prohibitive cholesterol issue), feel free to use the recipe.

Tonight’s dinner linked below. What would you do to add some flavor in terms of seasonings? We both felt this has potential but we weren’t sure what we’d do to give it some more bite.

Sounds a bit like bulgogi. Maybe add some sugar, ginger, and sesame oil to the marinade?

Nothing like coming home from an overseas trip to find that your garage fridge/freezer got fried by a thunderstorm. The smell of rotting meat was something I wish never to experience again.

Oy.  I'll resist the urge to make a dumb joke about "stench" and "Nats"...sorry that happened  :(

As a kid my BiL "borrowed" (and forgot about) the extension cord attached to a deep freeze full of meat.  I think they had to wear hazmat suits in the basement after that.

Making a tenuous link between 'joke' and 'meat'...

Two cows are standing in a field, gazing up at the moon, high in the night sky. One cow says to the other '10 bucks says you can't do it...'   ;)

That is how I order my burgers "Pittsburgh". Rarely successfully done
