George Fassett's Poor Man's Lobster

Home | Recipes | G


  • Monk fish fillet
  • Melted butter
  • Lemon
  • Garlic


If you like seafood, try this sometime. It's a fillet from the Monk Fish, and is usually available at most fresh seafood counters.
The meat is translucent pink, with a darker purple membrane on one side. Cut off that membrane, and discard. Then cut the fillet into 1 1/2 to 2 inch chunks.
Bring a pan of water to a boil and drop the chunks into it. Count to 10 then spoon back out. The meat will double in size and be a nice white color.
Place chunks on a broiling pan and baste with melted butter (add lemon and/or garlic if desired). Broil on each side for about 5 minutes, until lightly browned.
Cut into fork-sized pieces and dip into melted butter, just as you would lobster. A little milder flavor, but definitely is a good substitute, at a much cheaper price! Cook some cube steaks with this meal and call it Poor Man's Surf and Turf!"
