History has it that…. Monkfish is a common fish in the Mediterranean and Atlantic. It grows to a length of approximately one metre, with a disproportionally large head and a scale-less brown body. It's a fish so ugly that it is sometimes called “sea toad” or “sea devil” and in the past, monkfish caught by fishermen were thrown back in sea as their repulsive looks resembled monsters bringing bad luck. However, its delicate and firm meat makes it a real delicacy for fish lovers.
