Fish 4 Friday: Thai Monkfish Soup

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Ugly. That’s all you can call it. Ugly, UGly, UGLY! (And no, I never dated somebody who looked like that; it’s a rude and vicious slander. She could take her dentures out to soak.)

Fish 4 Friday: A Hum-Dinger of a Seafood Chowder as We Say Goodbye to GYCOM
