If you love lobster or scallops, then you need to try Wild-Caught North Atlantic Monkfish. The flavor and texture of this local Maine fish is most often compared to these two crustaceans. The monkfish loin comes from the tail of the fish and has a mild flavor in its large flakes of meat. Because of its dense meat, the monkfish is an excellent choice to grill, pan-roast, or bake to heighten its natural mild yet slightly sweet flavor. Our monkfish loins are sourced from the North Atlantic and fillets are cut daily. We flash-freeze them immediately to seal in freshness and every fillet is boneless. If you’ve never had monkfish before, add it to your cart today to discover what you’ve been missing.
In accordance with NOAA FishWatch guidance, Maine Lobster Now proudly serves sustainably and responsibly sourced seafood products to our customers. Wild-Caught North Atlantic monkfish is local to waters off the coast of Maine and are sustainably sourced using gill nets to fish them throughout the North Atlantic and Canada.
What’s the Serving Size of Wild-Caught Monkfish Loin?
Each order of wild-caught monkfish comes frozen in a 1 lb. package. We recommend serving 8 oz. of fish per person, so your monkfish loin will be enough to feed 2 people as their main course.
The Health Benefits of Monkfish
Seafood is widely regarded by medical experts and dieticians to be healthy and provide nutritional benefits not found in other meat sources. While salmon is often widely publicized for its health benefits, in general, most fish species are also low in calories and fat, but high in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
Monkfish has just 60 calories and 1.5 grams of fat per 3 oz. serving while providing 12 grams of protein. Monkfish is also an excellent source of both iron and potassium.
Schedule Deliveries and Earn FREE Shipping
You can also schedule your seafood delivery ahead of time. At checkout, choose the date you want your food delivered and we ship overnight all orders so your products are delivered on that day. This ensures we always deliver the freshest possible seafood at your door on the day you need it.
In order to bring you a truly memorable seafood experience and keep our products as fresh as possible, all frozen items are shipped with gel packs or dry ice. Dry ice is not hazardous to food and will not contaminate it. In fact, these cooling methods, alongside our own nitrogen freezing process, help keep your seafood at ideal temperatures during shipping and ensure they taste just like they are fresh from the dock.
Simple Instructions for Storing and Thawing Monkfish
Storage: Keep frozen ≤ 0℉ (-18° C). Vacuum-sealed fish held under these conditions should retain their quality for at least 6 to 12 months. Lean white fish (halibut, cod) generally have a longer freezer life than fatty fish (salmon, tuna, sablefish). It is important to note seafood stored in frost-free freezers should be used within 3 months.
Thawing instructions: Thaw under refrigeration ≤ 38℉ (3℃). Before thawing, puncture or remove packaging. For quick-thawing, place frozen fish in cool water for approximately 20 to 30 minutes, just until contents are flexible. Once thawed, immediately cook or refrigerate (if refrigerating, puncture the package). Regardless of the chosen thawing technique, once the product is thawed, it should be cooked within 24 hours and stored at a temperature no higher than 38℉ (3℃).
Cooking Wild-Caught Monkfish
All of our fish products can be served in a variety of ways. You can follow your own household recipe or find plenty of fish recipes online.
Pro Tip: Monkfish fillets have a purple, translucent membrane attached to the loin. It is recommended to cut the membrane away before cooking.
Please be Aware: Consuming raw or undercooked fish may increase your risk of foodborne illness, especially if you have certain medical conditions.
