12/10 Special: Pomfret and Squid Ink?

We have a pomfret in the deep waters off Hawaii which is more commonly known as "monchong". If you're ever in Hawaii and you see monchong on the menu, it's pomfret. Most of the time these fish are caught by accident so it's a fish that you can really only run as a special since availability is limited.

Hi Ironchef, who knew pomfret's were available in Hawaii. I love pomfrets. They have a really delish flavor. I had my fill of them in India. Thanks for sharing this information. Next time I am in Hawaii I will look for monchong.

Yeah I love the flavor as well. Talking to fishermen, they usually catch them while fishing for tuna in deep water, or if they're just trolling lines in deeper water.
