Any cheap white fleshed fish will do.

Not too many Northerns around here (We'd have to go to Canada for them). Plenty of Pickerel, and a mess of Muskies though. Biggest I ever caught was 42", which is considered a Small Musky. All of those have more bones than I care to deal with.

Can't afford Monkfish so we've started making a substitute. We call it "poor man's monkfish". :biggrin: Yup, lobster was actually cheaper than monkfish the last time it was on sale.

I'd probably have to be fried too. I wish I would have acquired that taste when I was young, but if Dad doesn't like the smell of fish in the house, nobody eats fish. icon_eek.gif

LOL---Good one!!!

 

I don't buy either of them any more.

 

Last time I had Lobster Tail was for Father's Day a few years ago, at my Son's house. 

 

It was Ribeyes & Lobster Tail.  He takes care of the Old Man!!

Here is what Burbot (Eelpout) looks like boiled.  You want to use a sugar and salt water boil. They just have two backstraps basically and it's boneless. Tastes very close to Lobster in every way.

 

I deep fried a few just to experiment.

That's gotta be awesome Poor Man's Lobster!!!

Wish we had that around here---Gotta settle for its brothers---Catfish & Eels.  LOL---They're boneless too, after filleting them.
