Happy Weekend Great Smoking Cookies!!!!!!!
Today's meal here was monkfish, and while some people refer to that as the "poor man's lobster," I don't think of it as a "second tier" fish of any kind, and adore it! Especially smoked!
While my photos weren't terrific, the taste today sure was!!!! Here's sharing some warmth and wonderful "after dinner" glow with you all therefore! Smiles.
Make your weekend delicious!!!!!!!

I started with fresh monkfish and some red garnet yam (yes, I know, you must be tired of seeing such, but I do eat one every day) - the potato was "started" in the microwave for 6 minutes, and then sliced...
Then I coated everything (fish and potatoes) in grapeseed oil and put that on my little gas smoker, with hickory chips for 25 minutes.
A WON-DER-FUL brown crust with deep flavor formed on the fish - fabulous contrast to the soft and moist inside when cutting in - and I put this over salad...
And yes, for anyone just now seeing one of my posts for the first time, I eat A LOT of salad! Smiles. (That probably would feed two families normally, I suppose)...
With chopped parsley, chopped raw elephant garlic, olive oil, squeezed fresh limes, and cayenne pepper, this really was fantastic!!!
And so, simple aside, it was healthful and really lovely (or so in my mad-cow, or "mad-monkfish" tainted opinion I do believe) and so thank you for sharing in today's dinner!
