Fish Alternatives Thick fish steaks such as halibut or salmon would hold up well to the pan-roasting and taste delicious with this sauce.
Variation Pan-Roasted Monkfish with Wild Mushrooms and Scallions. Use 1 pound sliced shiitake mushroom caps or 1 pound of mixed wild mushrooms in place of the regular mushrooms.
The meaty textures of the monkfish and mushrooms will be well served by a full-bodied Chardonnay from California or Australia. The dish would even go nicely with a light red wine such as a Pinot Noir from California.
