Monchong is Hawaiian for pomfret. A yummy and delicate fish that I am preparing tonight. I am grilling it off w/ island spices and serving it over a pistachio crepe topped w/ grill n chill shrimp salad finished w/ a pineapple cream.
Any chance I have, I like to bring in fish that may not be common to some of our guests. Barramundi is an example of this and also happens to be one of my personal favorites. This Australian fish, flaky white and as delicate as they come, is perfect for anything from broiling to grilling. I just had a shipment delivered to me today and hope to have another for my weekend patrons. And as for the cheesy title to this blog ….. well, the only explanation is that I always get excited to play with this fish and create amazing features so needless to say, it makes me giddy as a schoolboy!!!!
