GRILLED MONCHONG WITH GARLIC CREAM SAUCE

GRILLED MONCHONG WITH GARLIC CREAM SAUCE
DINNER AT HOME 

I was so happy to see super fresh Monchong for $5.99 per pound.  This is an incredible price for fresh fish in Hawaii and it allowed me to prepare dinner for three for under $10 total!  While I have already published two posts on Monchong (see links below), this meal was so good that I wanted to share it. 
Since Monchong is a mild fish, you really need a sauce to enhance the flavor.  I simply saut├ęd garlic and shallots in olive oil and then deglazed the pan with 1/4 cup of white wine. I let the wine reduce and then added 1/4 cup of chicken stock.  Reduced again and added about 1/3 cup of cream.  I let the cream heat through and then added juice of half a lemon some capers and fresh thyme.  Finished the sauce with three tablespoons of butter, salt and pepper.  My measurements are not exact as I just add, taste and adjust.  While my sauce thickened on a very low heat, I grilled the Monchong on an indoor grill pan.  This dish was a hit with the entire family and delicious.  Liked the sauce so much that I poured it over the broccoli and carrots.  Served with mashed potatoes with butter and fresh thyme.
