Flash-frozen fish this week comes via BerkShore in one-pound packages:
• Swordfish is USA-caught. These steaks have a typically firm and meaty texture.
• Monkfish is locally caught off the Boston pier. It is sweet, mild, firm, and almost meaty in texture, all of which is why it is sometimes called "poor man's lobster."
• Skate filets come from the wing of this fish. It has a mild flavor and a texture similar that of scallop or crab. It's classic in French cuisine, which it is pan fried in brown butter with capers.
