GRILLED MONCHONG

 GRILLED MONCHONG
DINNER AT HOME

So lucky to live in Hawaii.  The weather is great and there is an abundance of fresh fish.  The market today was really good with fresh Mahi Mahi, Opah, Sword Fish and Monchong.  I went for the Monchong because I like the texture and flavor plus it was $9.99 per pound as opposed to almost $20 per pound for Mahi Mahi.  I cooked this great fresh and healthy meal for three for around $20 total.  Monchong is great for grilling.  The fish is very mild so it works well with just about any sauce.  I made a simple sauce with shallots, chicken stock, white wine, butter and a hint of creme.  Added the creme because we had some in the refrigerator and it was expiring in a day or two.  Simply sauteed the shallots and added chicken stock.  Reduced a bit and added white wine.  Reduced again and added salt/pepper then mixed in about a tablespoon of cream.  Sauce was delicious according to my wife and daughter.  Grilled the Monchong for a few minutes on both sides and that was it.  Served with fresh vegetables sauteed in a little garlic, olive oil and butter.  The entire family finished everything on our plates so this was a winner.
